Color Gone Wild
Weaving Guilds of Oregon
Color Gone Wild, a traveling show sponsored by the Weaving Guilds of Oregon (WeGO), stops at Marylhurst University in March and April during a statewide tour.
The Color Gone Wild show features 70 pieces, representing the work of more than 700 members of WeGO, a nonprofit statewide organization of weaving, spinning and related fiber craft guilds.
WeGO sponsors this traveling juried exhibition every three to five years. The Best of Show award went to Francisco Bautista of Sandy, Ore., for Sentimientos, a Zapotec weaving in the tradition of Oaxaca, Mexico. Other show awards went to Patty Beckman of Brookings; Corienne Geddes of Roseburg; Cindie Kitchin of Grants Pass; Suzie Liles of Eugene; Phoebe McAfee of Portland; and Cynthia Jack Newman of Baker City.
At each stop on the tour, attendees will vote on a People’s Choice award, which will be tallied and presented at the conclusion of the traveling exhibition.
Streff Gallery is located in Shoen Library and open during normal library hours.
