Enough Pie, Collaborators for Awakening: Motion
Enough Pie's annual Awakening arts fest encourages everyone in the community to get involved.
Starting today, Mon., Nov. 13, through Fri. Dec. 15, Enough Pie seeks collaborators for next year's Awakening, a multi-disciplinary arts event series. This year's Awakening embodies the theme of "motion," envisioning projects that creatively share solutions for mobility and connectivity on roads in the Upper Peninsula.
You can learn more about Awakening: Motion at tonight's knitting circle at St. Julian Devine Community Center, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the John L. Dart Library this Fri. Nov. 17 from 10 a.m.-noon, or online at enoughpie.org/awakeningcall.
North Charleston Arts Fest, African-American Fiber Artists
Now through Thurs. March 1, 2018, the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is accepting entries from African-American textile artists from around the country for an exhibition presented as a component of the 2018 North Charleston Arts Fest. The arts festival takes place from May 2-6 and the exhibition, titled I'm NOT Every Woman, I'm a PHENOMENAL Woman!
, will be on display through June 22.
Every year the fiber exhibition is curated by award-winning and nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah 'Cookie' Washington, offering a showcase for African-American artists to display their original designs. The challenge for this year's exhibition is to create a fiber work, such as a quilt, doll, or wearable art piece, that pays tribute to extraordinary African-American women.
