Enjoy some sips and nibbles and join us on October 3rd at 5:30pm for a special exhibit of Fiber Art at the MAC, 40 Railroad Avenue in downtown Milford, CT. Free and open to the community! Can’t make the reception? Pop in during office hours Tuesdays through Fridays 10am-5pm. Call ahead 203.878.6647.

This exhibit will be judged by Ruben Marroquin, an artist and textile/surface designer from the Fashion Institute of Technology. Ruben studied at the National Textile Workshop in Paris, France and started his career while studying painting at the Reveron Fine Arts School in Caracas, Venezuela in the late 90s. Marroquin works primarily with textiles, enhancing the graphic elements of linear pliable materials through a unique sculptural approach. His process has evolved over two decades from traditional hand embroidery to large scale installations with renowned interior designers. Marroquin continues to teach weaving workshops in schools, sharing his expertise and involvement with the craft with students of all ages.
