Bee-Clectics Exhibit
10:00 AM
Bozeman Public Library
Description:
The Bee-Clectics will exhibit fabric creations in the Atrium Gallery at the Bozeman Public Library January 2 through February 28, 2018. The Bozeman Public Library Foundation, sponsors of the exhibit, will host an artist’s reception on Friday, January 5, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., free and open to the public.

The members of the Bee-Clectics explore and make fabric art for the fun and joy of creating in a spirit of friendship. The group started informally in 2016 as a weekly activity group focusing on fabric, threads, and mixed media. The name, Bee-Clectics, comes from the historical concept of the quilting bee, a community gathering where quilts were made by a group of women in a social setting.

Members work on individual projects while exploring an eclectic source of materials and techniques to enhance their fabric, thread, and mixed media artwork. The group meets weekly and the goal is to experience learning and experimenting in an atmosphere of mutual interest. The diverse members have shown their work at local, regional, and national shows; have published work in various magazines; and have taught art and quilting techniques. Some members sell their work or accept commissions and others produce art for the purpose of inspiring and pleasing themselves and others.

The exhibition will be on display during Library hours. A percentage of sales will go to the Bozeman Public Library Foundation to ensure continuation of cultural programs at the Library for public benefit. For more information about the exhibit or opening reception, please call Sarah DeOpsomer at 582-2425 or email sarah@bozemanlibraryfoundation.org.
