Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will feature the work of members of the Potomac Fiber Arts Guild in “COVID Revolutions” along with two additional exhibits and Open Studios. 

The February 5th opening will run from 11am – 3pm and will warm the cold Winter month. Enjoy additional exhibits – “Love and Compassion” with Resident Artists, and Gallery 209 Artists exhibiting their latest work. 

During COVID lockdowns, COVID openings, and everything in-between, what has been created in fiber art in all types of fiber mediums and themes? Works on display in the Potomac Fiber Arts Guild exhibit will demonstrate how COVID has affected artists’ lives through art. 

This exhibition will explore what members have been up to since the first COVID lockdown in March of 2020 up to present day. These works will reflect how COVID has impacted the artist’s individual styles, emotions, techniques, mediums, materials and subject matter. From memorials, to using humor to cope, from scientific points of view to the spiritual, this exhibit will offer a view into the maker’s mind. Curated by Cathy Hirsh.
