Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore (FACES) is now showing “Connecting Kuumba Through Community: Black Fiber Artists’ Showcase” in Denton.
Starting on November 5, celebrate black fiber art from around the Eastern Shore. FACES is proud to showcase a diverse range of talents, including quilting, crochet, fashion and accessory design, collage, and more. The exhibit will feature creations made by local and regional artists, as well as heirloom pieces. The artwork will be on display at FACES in Denton from November 5 through December 31.
“Kuumba” means creativity in Swahili and is the sixth principle of Kwanzaa, an African American celebration of family, community, and culture. The purpose of kuumba is to use our creativity to enrich and beautify our communities. Kwanzaa was created by Dr. Maulana Karenga, an Eastern Shore native, in 1966 as part of the black liberation movements happening in the United States during that time. Kwanzaa occurs from December 26 to January 1.
Come out and support black fiber artists and learn more about Kwanzaa. Interested artists or art owners should contact Yolanda Acree at email@example.com or FACES at firstname.lastname@example.org. FACES is open Tuesday from 2 to 6 p.m., Thursday and Friday from noon to 4 p.m. and is located at 7 North 4th Street in Denton. Call 443-448-4611 for more information.
