The Purple Pomegranate, a fine craft specialty store, is featuring a juried fiber art exhibition with the theme of Shelter during the month of October. Shelter is one of the basic needs for all living creatures. What constitutes shelter? Is it an actual structure or metaphysical? From the lowliest tent to a mansion, shelter exists in many forms and has many different meanings. What does shelter mean to you? Fiber artists from throughout the U.S. considered how to represent the theme of Shelter in their fiber art.
