“Traveling Light” A Collaborative Exhibit by Gale Smith & Alice Blake Powell
November 2 - 24, 2018
Friday, November 2, 6-8pm - Opening Reception
Friday, November 24, 6-9pm - Closing Reception & Fourth Friday
Join us for the new exhibit, “Traveling Light,” and a collaboration between artist, Gale Smith, and fashion designer, Alice Blake Powell. This exhibit idea has grown out of the collaboration between Gale and Alice during last year’s “ExperiMetal” exhibit where they designed and created a dress for Gale to wear during the reception. Gale wove a copper tapestry using various shades of blue and Alice created and fashioned the design.
The opening reception will be held on Friday, November 2nd from 6-8pm. Visit with the artists and enjoy refreshments with live music.
