Dr. York will be the featured artist for the duration of the exhibit. Dr. Portia York is a crochet artist, professor, and motivational speaker. Her work ties directly to our themes throughout and pushes the artistry and textiles to a whole new level! “Her work inspired me when I first saw it,” Wiedrich explained. “It’s innovative, different, and expressive.” Niche Knits opens to the public on Saturday, September 9, 2023. A public opening will be held on Saturday, September 9 from from 1pm-3pm.
