University of North Texas Fibers Show @ The Panhandle House

The Fibers Department @ the University of North Texas has been busy!!! I attended their show a few weeks ago at the Panhandle House in Denton, Texas. What an array of emerging talent and a unique venue! Each piece had its very own unique aesthetic, but all were united in the carefully quality which is standard in the UNT Fibers program under their professor, Amie Adelman.
