California Fibers: Eclectic Threads at the Oceanside Museum of Art

California Fibers currently has an exhibit, California Fibers: Eclectic Threads, at the Oceanside Museum of Art, in Oceanside, California, through October 9. The show is in a large room upstairs in the museum, with half the walls painted black and half white, to show off the wide variety of fiber art in the exhibit.

On July 12, from 6:30 to 8 PM, there will be a "Walk and Talk with the Artists". It will be a semi- seated event, in that there will be chairs available to sit, watch, and listen, but guests will be encouraged to move around the gallery and gather with each artist near their artwork.
