The Hand Weavers Guild of America welcomes you to the ultimate international fiber art experience, HGA’s Convergence conference, where you can meet people face to face and touch real cloth, not just exchange texts or look at images. Immerse yourself in the inspiration and stimulation of exhibits, classes, textile tours, and shopping—all in the vibrant arts community of Providence, Rhode Island.
To celebrate the Hand Weavers Guild of America‘s International Convergence Conference, Gallery Night Providence is offering two exciting textile tours. One tour will be led by fiber artist Michele Leavitt, the other by weaver Ginny Walsh. The tours will stop at five Gallery Night Providence galleries. The last stop will be the Convergence Conference at the RI Convention Center to view the exhibits.
In addition to special exhibitions dedicated to fiber arts by our Gallery Night members, ArtProv, Peaceable Kingdom, and the URI Feinstein Gallery, we’re offering two one-time stops as well, The Paper Connection, and RISD’s Sol Koffler Gallery.
