Central Oregon Community College’s (COCC) Barber Library is exhibiting a traveling show of juried woven art pieces, sponsored by the Weaving Guilds of Oregon (WeGO), on display now in the Rotunda Gallery through November 8, with an opening reception from 2-4pm on Sunday, October 1.

The exhibition, titled Filaments, features 47 pieces — including shawls, table runners and tapestries — by 24 different artists. The traveling show is covering some 1,200 miles on its tour and visiting six locations in Oregon, from Lincoln City to Baker City.

“We are starting our new school year with this beautiful fabric arts exhibit, a collection that is filled with joy, inspiration and amazing colors,” said Tina Hovekamp, director of COCC’s library services.

WeGO was established by Dee Ford Potter of Bend in 1982 as a statewide organization dedicated to sharing and promoting fiber arts information, resources and education.
