The Insiders: A 14-year-old artist and a celebration of yarn
In this week’s Insider, we told you of a young 14-year-old artist by the name of Amaranthia Gittens-Jones.
And now it is time for you to check out the work of AmaSepiaChan (her artist name). Gittens-Jones’s exhibit opens today in the NHTI library and will be on display through the end of the month. The exhibit is free and will include more than 25 pieces. The library hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Despite her young age, Gittens-Jones has displayed an ability to tackle a wide array of mediums. In fact, she is working on a life size sculpture of us made out of wire, masking tape and clay. Unfortunately, it will not be done in time for the exhibit.
If you want some fun and excitement to kick off the day, then grab your yarn and needles and head on over to the Unitarian Universalist Church for Fiber Frolic for All: A Celebration of Yarn at 9:30 a.m. The two-hour informal gathering of fiber enthusiasts (their words, not ours) is open to all knitters, weavers and crochet artists. Beginners are welcome as well. Bring your own supplies and some extras if you would like to share.
Was your New Year’s resolution centered around eating better? Well, if that is the case, then the Concord Co-op has just the thing for you. From 2 to 4 p.m., Registered Dietitian Traci Komorek will be on hand to answer all your health and diet questions. And did we mention it is free and right after the Winter Farmers Market at Cole Gardens?
