Another First Friday Exhibition Opening!

Our Fiber Visions exhibition will continue to be on display at the Bas Bleu Theatre in Fort Collins, Colorado through the month of December.  We had a great First Friday opening reception in November as you can see from the photos here.  If you missed the party, you still have another chance to come to our second First Friday reception on December 5 from 5-7pm.  Stop by for something to drink or a bite to eat and enjoy some great art!  And if you can't make this second reception, you can always stop by when the Bas Bleu Theatre is open to see the exhibition.
