Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists

The 2016 Juried Exhibition

In Association with the Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists

August 30 – October 31, 2016

LAFTA LOGO--color

Founded in 1995, the Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists (LAFTA) is an organization of more than 80 local visual artists whose work encompasses an array of surface design and construction techniques including hand and machine embroidery, quilting, weaving, beading, batik and shibori dyeing, paper- and felt-making, and basketry. Designed to provide a forum for general exchange of ideas and opportunities for networking, LAFTA is also active in the community, providing artwork to Home of the Innocents, The Family Place, and the Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center.

The 2016 LAFTA Juried Exhibition will be displayed during the months of September and October in the Actors Theatre galleries. The show opens to the public on Tuesday, August 30. Receptions will be held during Friday Night Gallery Hops on September 2 and October 7 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. Participating artists will be present at those times to discuss their work in a casual environment with both art and theatre patrons.
