Through November, this beautiful piece is now hanging at Art at the Cave Gallery, 108 E. Evergreen, Vancouver, Washington. This finished sculpture was created in just one day at Arts of Clark County’s Collaborative Crochet “Make Art!” workshop on August 7, 2018.
The piece, called “Together,” was made and designed as the day progressed by the participants. It will be available for purchase through a silent auction during the Clark County Open Studios Exhibition at Art at the Cave. Proceeds from the sale will help fund next years “Make Art!” workshops, including Bonnie Melzer’s “THE COMMON THREAD: a collaborative crochet workshop.” We are proud to be part of this endeavor, and look forward to seeing what beautiful art can be made from our selvage.
This video gives you a fun look at the process–and the sheer size!–of this project.
