Also happening on Friday, July 6th, from 5-7pm, Woodruff’s Art Center will be holding an opening reception for their latest art show, “Fiber Fusion: Construct, Deconstruct, Reconstruct. Fiber Fusion features work by four fiber artists, each with their own distinct take on the medium. The artists seek to expand the definition of fiber art by integrating materials other than what is normally expected in the genre. The title “Construct, Deconstruct, Reconstruct” refers to the processes the artists use to create their pieces. The show will be on display from July 5th through August 13th. In addition to the opening reception Woodruff’s will be holding “Meet the Artist” events on Sundays throughout July, during which each artist will be discussing their individual techniques. The show can also be viewed during Woodruffs Art Center’s normal business hours: Monday through Saturday, 9am-5pm and Sunday 11am-5pm. For more information, please visit www.WoodruffsArtCenter.com or call 508-477-5767.
