GERI FORKNER

SOUTHEAST SAMPLER:
FIBER JOURNEYS FROM TENNESSEE TO THAILAND

MAY 17, 2014

Follow Geri on a journey through the southeast sections of the US and Asia to sites that have informed her textile work for the past decade. From the comfort of your chair, you will travel from gaudy Gatlinburg to the gentle tap tap of Thai looms, from the moonshine hollows of modern day Shakerag to the munching silk worms of her recent Thai village homestay.  She will showcase artists she met along the way, and give you a peek at the new world of electronic textiles.

"SALVAGE"

A showing of the 35 minute documentary "SALVAGE":  This film was made about a program of Union Rescue Mission called Hope Gardens.  Wearable Art Connection has donated $800 to this program which helps homeless women and their children escape the streets in downtown Los Angeles and get counseling, job training, and support.  The film follows several women's stories and shows both successes and the occasional failure.  After the screening, there will be a question and answer period with the producers.

WAC Members Show-n-Share

We will form a circle and share our show-n-share with our fellow members of WAC. Bring your latest creations.
