Art Explodes in Barre this Summer

“Soft Bomb Barre”, large and small-scale fiber installations, is taking over local businesses.

“Soft Bomb Barre”, large and small-scale fiber installations, is taking over local businesses.

Studio Place Arts (SPA) is hosting a fiber art extravaganza that includes an exhibit called “Visionary Conspiracy” of outstanding work by Vermont members of the nationally renowned Surface Design Association. The artwork will include traditional and sometimes unconventional pieces made using an arsenal of threads, textiles, wool, needles and looms. It will be displayed in the main floor gallery at SPA from July 26 to August 27, 2016, with an opening reception on Thursday, July 28, from 6-8 p.m.

At the same time, other artists will be involved in public installations of their fiber artwork outdoors, called “Soft Bomb Barre.” These varied “art explosions” (large and small-scale fiber installations) around Barre involve a variety of fibers – such as upcycled fabrics (e.g., neckties from National Life Group staff members and salvaged socks from Darn Trough VT), yarn, rope and other items. Soft Bomb Barre includes special exhibits at other sites, talks, a pop-up weaving studio, and more.

The exhibit, installations and special events are scheduled to take place during the Barre Heritage Festival.

Barre Senior Activity Center, Project Independence, and Creative Crafts Group in Florida have been a great help.
