Event Details

Join us 6:30-8:30pm Thursday, July 11at the Stifel Fine Arts Center for the opening of Narrative Fiber: Form, Fashion, Function.

This all-woman exhibition seeks to present fiber beyond its utilitarian applications – revealing how artists push the conventional thinking of how it is used. The result is a narrative that stems from fiber to art to fashion and circles back to utility along the way.

The exhibit is on display through August 17. Free admission.

Sponsored by United Bank and Wheeling Heritage.
