Manley Art Center (433 Oak Street in Brookings) presents the February Art Exhibit Display, on display from February 7th through March 4th, showcases a diverse collection of fiber art produced by its fiber artists members and the local weaving group, Webfoot Weavers.  Open 11AM - 4PM, Tuesday - Saturday.
From the ubiquitous knitted dish towel to the gossamer-painted silk scarf, fiber and textiles have been used by humans for eons. The fiber artists featured in this month's exhibit explore their creativity through silk painting,
weaving, knitting, crocheting, felting, and quilting. This collaborative show displays work from novices to masters, wearable art to decorative accessories.

The goal of this exhibit is to present to the public the variety of fiber art disciplines. “We hope to open up the viewer’s imagination to all the possible ways working with fibers can ignite creativity,” says Manley Art Director
Stacey Reynolds. The artists whose works are included in this exhibit bring a high level of technical expertise and a willingness to share their knowledge and the joy they take in creating.

The rest of the exhibit features a variety of art created by the Manley Art Center members. Proceeds from the sale of artwork are shared between the artists and the Manley Art Center. The Manley uses its portion to further its mission to promote, through education, the appreciation, distribution, and enjoyment of fine arts and crafts.
 
The Manley Art Center is home to the Pelican Bay Arts Association. Since its beginning in 1955, they are committed to supporting the Arts in our community. The art center’s website can be viewed here: ManleyArtCenter.com
