Fiber artists, quilters and weavers happily “broke the rules” at the Diamond Valley Arts Center in Hemet Sunday, March 4, by showing off their fabric art pieces and how they were made at the reception and opening of the center’s 2018 Fabric Arts Show.

The show that will continue through the month of March at the center, 123 N. Harvard St, Hemet brought more than a dozen fiber artists from the region to enter the DVAC contest and to exhibit their work to the public.

Fiber artists create colorful art pieces using fabric, quilts, buttons, beads and other cast -off items and stitching or gluing them together. These works are often titled by the artists.

The majority of the artists who entered in the annual DVAC Fabrics Art Show are members of the “Designing Desert Divas.”
