LIVE ART DEMONSTRATION SCHEDULE
Noon-5:00pm • The Palmetto Fiber Arts Guild, an affiliate of the Handweavers Guild of America, is a community of handcrafters interested in the wide range of fiber arts, including, but not limited to, weaving, spinning, dyeing, felting, basketry, quilting, knitting, crocheting, tatting, and bead weaving. Members of the guild will offer demonstrations in a variety of these fiber art techniques throughout the day.
Noon-2:30pm • Christopher Dotson is obsessive about lines, shapes, and color, and he is particularly fascinated by the effects of light and shadow on objects. Drawing and painting are his tools for exploring their meaning, telling a story, and bringing the viewer into his world. Chris’ background as an arts instructor means he’s quite used to an audience, so don’t be afraid to get up close to view the progress on his latest abstract oil painting and engage in conversation about his process, technique, materials, where he get his ideas, and more.
2:30-5:00pm • Scott Wallace – watch as he explores unusual color palettes and the textural possibilities of acrylic paint in the creation of a new abstract work
