The Athens Fibercraft Guild is collaborating with the Institute for Women's Studies at UGA to honor Women's History Month with an exhibit of weaving by local women artists, displayed in the IWS offices in Gilbert Hall.  The 2015 national Women's History Month theme is Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives.

 

We invite you to stop by our offices and check out the exhibit Monday - Thursday between the hours of 9am-11am and 2pm-4pm.  Exhibit not open for viewing on Fridays.

 

The exhibit will be on display until April 17, 2015.
