The weekend of March 30-31st brought together fiber artists from around Alabama for the Festival of Alabama Fine Arts. This event was hosted at Old Alabama Town and featured workshops, seminars, and displays. The exhibits were juried and winners selected. This year, First Lady Dianne Bentley even selected a favorite. She considered the time spent, quality of work, technique, and appearance. Although she did pick one, she enjoyed viewing the creativity of them all.
First Lady Dianne Bentley hopes that this festival will gain more recognition through the next years so that fiber arts become more appreciated.
