Kicking Off October with First Friday

Kicking Off October with First Friday

We always enjoy gathering with our community to kick off a new month and this month’s event was an especially exciting one for us because alongside crafts from our first juried fiber arts show, we were honored to host two local artists, Helen Dewolf and Toni Wilson, both of whom offered demonstrations for the community over cookies and tea.

Between our guest artists and fiber arts exhibit, autumn was in the air as a great group of people gathered to appreciate diverse works from our Intersections finalists, as well as our featured artists from the Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild.

So far, Intersections has provided a unique opportunity for the community to become engaged with a division of artwork that plays not only with color, but also with texture, technique, and medium, including fibers such as yarn, felt, wool, and fabrics to create a myriad of two- and three-dimensional masterpieces.

With Intersections, we also have the Brazos Spinners and Weavers Guild to thank for sponsoring this unique exhibit as part of our joint mission to celebrate diversity and innovation through art and Bryan’s historic culture.

Intersections will continue to be on display from now until November 11, so if you haven’t had the chance to do so already, grab a friend and head on over! In addition to our fiber arts exhibit, we also have a “Banned Books” special feature in the bookshop, with new additions hitting the shelves every day.  All books are for sale, and we encourage you to relax and read for awhile in our lovely reading room.

For more information about First Friday, or to learn about more of the SEAD Gallery’s upcoming events, find us and follow us on Facebook! And don’t forget to keep an eye out for our next event, The History of Thread in Mathematics in Art, on Tuesday, October 17, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at 216 W. 26th Street.

 

See you there!
