For the first time, the College of the Canyons Art Gallery will exhibit
the intricacy and vibrancy of weaving in the exhibition “The Fine Art
of Weaving: Reconnecting to the Hand Woven Tradition.”
“It’s amazing to scrutinize these works,” said Larry Hurst, the college’s art gallery director. “As a painter, I am naturally drawn to the rich color and abstraction created by this process. These are objects that will appeal to everyone.”
A weaving is a textile composed of two interlacing threads, the warp and the weft. Most modern weavers use a loom, but other methods are also employed.
A reception for the artists will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 17.
Art gallery events are open to the public and admission is free.
The College of the Canyons Art Gallery is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday and Wednesday; 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Visitors unable to attend during these hours are welcome to call the gallery at (661) 362-3612 to make an appointment.
