Fiber art exhibit by Jackie Thomas to open Friday

WILLIAMSPORT — Fibers artist Jackie Thomas, a member of Bald Eagle Art League, will have the solo exhibit “The Texture of Pattern” in the Genetti Taphouse Gallery. An opening reception is planned tomorrow from 5 to 8 p.m.

The exhibit will be on view in December and January.

Driven by a love of counting that began early in an environment populated by creative parents, Jackie’s childhood has provided her with the ideal foundation for a fibers artist. Her artistry reveals her attention to detail.

Her works, created with fabrics, yarns, fleece and beads, are in the form of wall hangings, sculptural forms, dolls, fetishes, vessels and jewelry.

Thomas will be present for the opening reception and will provide original art works available for purchase.

The exhibit runs through Tuesday, Jan 30, 2018 during normal Taphouse hours: 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4:30-11 p.m. Mondays-Thursdays, and 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.-2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays (closed Sundays).

The gallery is in the back room of the Taphouse in the Genetti Hotel and Suites, 200 W. Fourth St.
