Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery was Washington’s first fiber art gallery when it opened in 1974 as an original occupant of the Torpedo Factory. Its parent guild was established in 1944 and is still going strong.
Our members create original fiber art such as sculptures, wall hangings, accessories, wearables, jewelry and many other innovative works. Examples of skills and techniques our artists use are knitting, weaving, paper making, quilting, basketry, jewelry, hand-painting and dyeing. Our members are very active in the art community. They teach, publish, exhibit in local and national shows; many have won awards.
Every year we install eleven juried shows, each of four to six weeks duration. Click here for our complete show schedule.
Our current show is “Magical, Mystical Animals”, through July 26, 2015. Here’s just a sampling of our work!
