A group of local crocheters, knitters, weavers, and other fiber artists will show new work in Fayetteville this week.

The artists have recently installed a new exhibit called ‘Hanging by a Thread’ at Fenix Arts, a gallery and artist collective on Mount Sequoyah, and an opening reception for the new show is set for this Friday, Jan. 19.

The reception was originally scheduled for last Friday, but was rescheduled due to the winter weather.

Artists in the show include Jaquita Ball, Katrinka Booth, Janice Paine Dawes, Laurie Foster, Gina Gallina, Puddin’ Ridge Fibers, Amber Imrie, Jessica McClendon, Cate McCoy, Melspace Creative, Teresa Michael, Donna Lynn Mulhollan, Ann Naumann, Tina Oppenheimer, Fawn Wonsower-Potter, and Kim Seaberg.

From the description of the show:

From the whimsical crochet by Gina Gallina to the contemplative sculptures crafted by Amber Imrie, and the fantastical wool felting masterpieces of Donna Mulhollan to the tufted pop art brilliance of Melspace Creative, the Fiber Arts exhibition offers a spectrum of creative narratives. The curation encapsulates the essence of fiber art, prioritizing aesthetic value over utility and highlighting the meticulous manual labor invested by each artist.

The opening reception on Friday will take place from 5-8 p.m. After that, folks interested in the show can check it out during regular gallery hours, scheduled Thursdays-Saturdays from 1-5 p.m. and on Sundays from 1-4 p.m.

Fenix Arts is located at 150 N Skyline Dr, Fayetteville, inside Millar Lodge.
