If you haven’t yet seen the Fresno Art Museum’s intriguing show “Fiber Art Master Works,” here’s a great opportunity to get additional insight from some of the artists themselves. The museum hosts a special enrichment program beginning 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 7.
Panelists include exhibiting artists Lia Cook (tapestry), Patti Handley (punch hook technique), Michelle Kingdom (embroidery), and Joan Schulze (quilting). The museum’s director and chief curator, Michele Ellis Pracy, will moderate. In May, I wrote a popular piece for The Bee headlined “10 things that wow in new Fresno Art Museum fiber arts show.”
At 3:30 p.m., Fresno Pacific University professor and composer Walter Saul will perform a piano concert of his piece “Quiltings,” which he wrote as a “musical tour” to accompany the work of his sister-in-law, fiber artist Ann Harwell. It will be accompanied by a showing of some of Harwell’s work.
The afternoon concludes at 4 p.m. with refreshments.
Never miss a local story.
The events are included in the price of admission ($5 for non-members). Details: www.fresnoartmuseum.org, 559-441-4221.
