Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery is celebrating our 50th anniversary!
We were Washington’s first fiber art gallery when it opened in 1974 as an original occupant of the Torpedo Factory. Our parent guild was established in 1944 and is still going strong.

Our members create original fiber art such as sculptures, wall hangings, accessories, wearables, table linens, jewelry, greeting cards 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. Our current show theme is “Black and White +1.”   Click here for our complete show schedule, and to learn more about the members featured during this show.

Here’s just a sampling of our work! There is more to see on Instagram and our website.
