Calling All Crocheters & Knitters! “Uncommon Threads: A Celebration of Fiber Arts”

On view from August 24 – September 24th, 2016
Opening Reception will be on August 26th from 5 -7. Please join us.

Uncommon Threads will explore the diverse world of fiber arts including crochet, knitting, quilting, embrodery, tapestry, weaving, and more. The exhibit will include BACC’s first community art collaboration; expert and novice crocheters/knitters, artists, and volunteers will work together to create the exhibit’s centerpiece one or more large crochet/ knit collaborative artworks–in the spirit of Prudence Mapstone’s collaborative crochet Flower Power art project (in photo). To learn how to get involved in the collaboration and exhibitionBACC is embarking on our first community art collaboration. We are seeking people who crochet and knit from all levels–beginners to experts. We need teachers as well as those who want to learn crochet and knitting techniques–from simple to complex. BACC is seeking contributions of crochet and knitting which will then be incorporated into one or more large crochet/ knit collaborative artworks–in the spirit of Prudence Mapstone’s collaborative crochet Flower Power art project (in the photo below). The finished work will be the centerpiece of our upcoming exhibition: Uncommon Threads: A Celebration of Fiber Arts– on view from August 24 – September 24th, 2016. The Opening Reception will be on August 26th from 5 -7. Please join us (see other side for more project details).

IMPORTANT: Due to the nature of the project, your crochet/knit contributions cannot be returned. The collaborative artwork will become a part of BACC’s Permanent Art Collection and will be exhibited during Uncommon Threads and other future exhibitions.
