September 28, 2018 through January 18, 2019

Old Town Newhall Library
24500 Main Street, Newhall, CA 91321

Reception: Wednesday, October 3, 2018 | 6 – 8 pm
Demonstration Day: Saturday, November 10, 2018

Weaving has been practiced since early times for clothing, utilitarian and decorative purposes. The wall hangings in this exhibit, woven entirely by members of the Southern California Handweavers’ Guild, are our modern take on this ancient skill. From scarves to jackets, rugs to towels and wall decor to baskets, the ancient tradition of weaving has its place in the twenty-first century.

This curated show of member artists range from new talented weavers to those whose work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide as well as in numerous private collections.  An opening reception will take place on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.  Don’t miss the special demonstration day that will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2018, where children and adults can try their hand at various weaving techniques.  There will also be a boutique where one-of-a-kind handwoven articles will be for sale.  To learn more about the Southern California Handweavers’ Guild, check out their website at www.schg.org.
