Corrales Fiber Arts Show

From the Historical Society of New Mexico:

The Corrales Fiber Arts Show and Sale is a display of the works of thirteen fiber artists from around the country and Canada. The show, held at the Old San Ysidro Church from July 17 to July 25, is being presented in conjunction with the biennial conference of the Handweavers Guild of America known as Convergence. An important part of Convergence is community exhibitions of members' works. The Corrales Show is the result of a cooperative effort of Las Aranas Spinners and Weavers Guild, the Corrales Historical Society and Corrales MainStreet.

The show runs from Sunday, July 18 to Sunday, July 25, from 9 am to 7 pm. The works include tapestries, rugs, table runners, shawls, scarves and basketry. A portion of the sale proceeds go to the Corrales Historical Society. This is an opportunity for area residents to see extraordinary, well crafted pieces by nationally acclaimed fiber artists.

Also stop by the Galeria de Corrales to see the unique and beautiful work of Patricia SPark, another Convergence fiber artist.
