Park Circle Gallery to exhibit works by The Upcountry Fiber Artists

Group exhibition on view throughout June

The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to announce that works by The Upcountry Fiber Artists will be on display at Park Circle Gallery from June 1-30, 2022. A free reception will be hosted by the artists on Friday, June 3, from 5-7pm. The public is invited to attend.

The Upcountry Fiber Artists are a group of six textile artists from across the upstate of South Carolina, including Evelyn Beck, Lynne Harrill, Sara Quattlebaum, Cynthia Steward, Denny Webster, and Kathryn Weston. Their exhibition, Art in Layers, explores the processes that recast quilting from a traditional craft that creates utilitarian textiles to a complex art form. Each artist transforms fabric and other fibers into evocative, impactful, and expressive works informed by nature, personal stories, imagination, and invention.

The Park Circle Gallery is located at 4820 Jenkins Avenue in North Charleston. Admission is free and free street parking is available on Jenkins Avenue in front of the gallery, as well as on the adjacent streets and in parking lots close by. The gallery is open 10:00am-6:00pm Wednesday-Friday, and Noon-4:00pm on Saturday. The gallery will be closed on June 10 & 11.
