Fiber Arts at the Newhall Community Center is on display now through the month of October in conjunction with the City’s ARTober month-long celebration of the arts. Fiber artist Blalock has created and installed a unique large and colorful crocheted installation transforming the lobby of the Newhall Community Center.
Ashley was born and raised in San Diego, California and has a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture, a Master of Arts in Art History and a Bachelor of Arts in Painting. Blalock has had solo installation venues in prestigious exhibits such as the Nevada Museum of Art, the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York, and the Last Bookstore in Los Angeles. Her work has been reviewed in the San Diego Union Tribune and featured in Vogue Knitting Crochet and Interweave Crochet Magazine.
This event is part of the City of Santa Clarita’s ARTober, a month-long celebration of the arts featuring free art events and displays throughout the Santa Clarita Valley to raise awareness about the important role arts and humanities play in our lives.
