The Holland Area Arts Council Welcomes the Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild Members Show to the Lievense Gallery. This exhibit will feature multi-media fiber-based contemporary art ranging from sculpture to weaving.
History of the Guild: This group was created in Holland in March of 1979 by a group of artists who had taken a community class together on hand spinning wool. The group met every Wednesday evening at each person's home continuing to spin wool yarn and share life's adventures. The members started out as the Fiber Arts Guild of Holland in 1990, they later changed the name to Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild to be more inclusive of all the guild members from along the lakeshore communities beyond Holland. Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild has always been artistically diverse with mediums from weaving to spinning, dyeing, basket-making, paper-making, surface design, garment construction, knitting, quilting, and more. LFAG has belonged to the Michigan League of Hand Weavers for most of the years as a guild.
