Call for Fiber Artists, accepting submissions May 5th - July 31st, 2018.
Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is hosting Techniques & Traditions fiber show Sept 6 - Sept 27
If you work in fiber or use a fiber technique you are welcome to appy.
Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is a non-profit community arts center housed in a grand 1931-era post office in vibrant downtown Monroe, Ga. Monroe is a town built on the history of its Cotton Mill. Many small fiber industry towns like Monroe receded with manufacturing globalization. Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is committed to be a venue where traditional fiber techniques can remain present. We have a gallery, gift shop, classrooms, sculpture garden and a pottery studio. In addition to gallery shows, we host classes, creative workshops and events.
September will be geared toward Fiber Arts. We will have pop-up markets running concurrently with the well-attended Monroe Farmers Market, featuring Guild Members fiber goods in the Gift Shop as well as fiber classes. Anyone interested in these events, please contact us for more information.
