Artists, businesses can join FACES for free
— A federal U.S. Dept. of Agriculture grant is allowing all fiber artists, groups and businesses on Delmarva to join the Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) for free through Aug. 31, granting them access to its regional directory.
Directory members are promoted by FACES through its social media and monthly newsletter. Members can also add their own events to a community calendar, maintained and promoted by FACES.
Lynda Blades, outreach coordinator, will help artists and businesses complete their directory profiles. She will also help interested artists sell their creations online, through the FACES Etsy shop.
Blades can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 410-829-0334.
FACES operates out of a restored historic home in downtown Denton, providing a central location for quilters and other fiber artists, as well as enthusiasts.
The FACES headquarters offers classes and studio space for artists, as well as a rotating lineup of exhibits to promote public access to artists’ work.
Currently, FACES is hosting “Painted Stitches,” an exhibit featuring art quilts by Donna Clauer Stufft and Sarah Jillard.
The quilts are made using an innovative “surface design” technique, creating wall hangings that, from a distance, look like traditional paintings.
The exhibit will be open to the public from noon to 4 p.m. both days of Summerfest, Friday, Aug. 18, and Saturday, Aug. 19, at the FACES headquarters at 7 N. Fourth St., Denton.
The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore is located on Fourth Street in Denton.
