Hanging work dimensionally is the subject of an interactive workshop Regina Benson is  giving on Saturday, September 26, at 11-2pm at Ice Cube Gallery in Denver. She will cover the design and construction issues surrounding dimensional presentation and you will have an opportunity to see the visual impact that your own work might have in these altered states. If you are in the area, please stop by, mingle with other artists and experiment.

This is a free event sponsored by the Mountains States Region of the International SAQA (www.SAQA.com) organization as a service to their members and an invite to the general public to come and learn a little more about the compelling ways fiber can be presented. Visitors can bring their own textile, art quilt, fiber and paper works to experiment with onsite at the gallery.
