Art and nature affirm and celebrate our place in this world. We are all connected, and art can help us remember this. The uplifting act of creating, when inspired by Arizona’s landscape, is what helped these artists get through the isolation of the pandemic lockdown of 2020.
The Telaraña Fiber Arts Guild proposed a challenge to keep their members engaged with one another and celebrate Arizona’s beauty. They took images of Arizona’s plants, canyons, lakes, and skies to inspire their creations, using their chosen fiber art techniques.
Telaraña Fiber Arts Guild promotes all fiber arts, including weaving, spinning, basketry, knitting, crochet, lacemaking, felting, dyeing, and more. This welcoming group includes artists with a wide range of experience, from beginners to advanced. Telaraña means “spider web” in Spanish and symbolizes the connections felt with others who love the fiber arts.
Since 1978, the Telaraña Weavers and Spinners Guild has been affiliated with the Handweavers Guild of America and the Arizona Federation of Weavers and Spinners Guilds. For more about the guild, go to Telarana.org.
Exhibition Date: April 13 - June 30, 2022
