FACES Exhibits

Exhibits at FACES
through March 26th


Downton Abbey Mystery Quilts  Inspired by the hit PBS series and the fun of making a mystery quilt, a group of local quilters met at FACES this summer and individually completed their own versions of a Downton Abbey Quilt. See the results on display at FACES.

Knitting: The Everyday Art Let’s celebrate this most noble of fiber arts! Knitting is such a common presence in our everyday that we forget just how amazing it really is. The women and men that knit today are artists with yarn and create warmth and beauty in everything that comes off their needles. We are honored to present a few of these local artists and showcase the diversity of the world of knitting.
