Hemp Artists Still Needed

Posted by on Feb 16, 2017 in News

A Call to All Hemp Fiber Artists”!
We have been contacted by the Rocky Mountain Society of Botanical Artists (RMSBA) to participate in their upcoming “Cannabis: A Visual Perspective” exhibit. This exhibit is to take place in April of 2017 to showcase works made with cannabis (which in our forum would be hemp fiber). Created works have an opportunity to be offered for sale after the exhibit. Hemp fiber used for making garments and textiles would be a welcome addition to the art images at the exhibit. The RMSBA has reached out to our guild for exhibitors for this upcoming event and we wanted to pass on this opportunity to all members that work with this fiber. Please reach out to our Outreach Coordinator for the contact details for this event at outreach@rmweaversguild.org.
