PORT ANGELES — Studio Bob will host the fourth annual Fiber Arts Exhibition during the Port Angeles Art Walk on Saturday.
The opening night and artist reception at the studio at 118½ E. Front St. will be during Art Walk from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday.
The exhibition will feature many forms of fiber art, including spinning, felting, weaving, quilting, crochet, rug punching, sewing, costumes, fiber sculpture and rugs.
This annual non-juried event, sponsored by Cabled Fiber & Yarn, will be on display throughout the month of September at Studio Bob.
Submissions include items recently completed and displayed at the Clallam County Fair, local fiber artists and family fiber heirlooms that embody the history of fiber arts brought down through the ages.
“We’re thrilled to have this exhibit again this year,” said MarySue French, co-owner of Cabled Fiber & Yarn.
“Each year we include new artists showcasing the extensive talents of our community and allow the public a chance to learn about different fiber art techniques.”
Between noon and 3 p.m. Sunday, the exhibit will be open with artist demonstrations.
The exhibit also will be open with demonstrations from noon to 4 p.m. during the Port Angeles Arts and Draughts Festival on Saturday, Sept. 21.
