“Fiber arts” are no longer just an elegant way to refer to your grandma’s state fair entry. The works of 20 of the Centennial State’s most “cutting-edge” artists—including Gay E. Lasher, Carol Ann Waugh, and Ray Tomasso—will be displayed in the first major show of contemporary fiber arts in Denver. Basic organic materials such as wood, thread, paper, and yarn are spun into pieces of fine art through embroidery, sewing, weaving, and stitching. The results are unique interpretations—woven steel and painted fabric—of everyday materials. After this exhibit, grandma’s hobby may look a whole lot different. Tue-Fri 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sat noon-4 p.m.
