A May Day celebration of the makers and making of textiles

For this juried show, artists and designers were invited to submit works for the inaugural exhibit in the Oak Knit Studio Gallery with their own broad interpretation of “Good Work.” What has emerged is a meaningful body of work that touches on labor, justice, gender, care, fair trade, the hand, immigration, community, skill and craftsmanship.
A May Day Celebration and afternoon of hands-on workshops is scheduled for May 1st. Join us to make and mingle with some of the show’s participating artists.
