Boyd Hastings dyed wool project

An eclectic fiber art show is the featured exhibit at the Springboro Performing Arts Center, 115 Wright Station Way. This show focuses on modern, traditional and art quilting, felting, weaving, mixed media and wearable art. FiberShow’21 is the idea of artist Cathy Jeffers, who shares that fiber arts is no longer a craft, but a serious form of artistic self-expression. Jeffers began working as a fiber artist in 2005. Her mastery of fabric work-- to create an image of people and animals along with her abstractions are now viewed in galleries and art museums across the country. 

In addition to Jeffers, works by nationally recognized artists including Maxine Thomas, Linda Ropeken, Helen Wilcox-Werling, Cris Fee, Delora Buford-Buchanan, Esther Bechler, Vicki Williamson, Tracy McElfresh, Boyd Hastings, Robin Hartmann, Dawnetta Fields, Rosalie Campbell and Becky Hancock are on display. 

The public is invited to a special, free event, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 25 to enjoy several presentations and hands-on activities including “Joining Raw Edges: The Stories They Tell,” presented by Pat Sturtzel. Sturtzel works at the Kentucky Center’s Arts Thrive Program (Arts in Healing) working with Veterans, Adults in recovery from substance abuse and older adults in assisted living facilities. Jeffers will also present stories from her solo fiber show held in Texas. Meet the Artists Reception will be held immediately following, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Gallery Hours are 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday with extended hours Friday, Sept. 10 & 17 until 8 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 11 & 18 and Sunday, Sept. 12 & 19, 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. or by appointment by calling 937-748-5774. The exhibit runs through Sept. 28.
