DENTON — The Fiber Arts Center of the Eastern Shore is hosting “Off the Axis,” an exhibit of knitted wearable pieces by Sue Wright.
The exhibit features original, knitted, wearable art. Employing variations of basic knit and purl stitches, Wright uses different styles of knitting, including diagonal and stockinette stitch. She even brings in mathematical concepts, including the Fibonacci sequence, to create unique and intricate masterpieces.
The pieces in the show are available for sale as noted on each garment. The exhibit can be viewed through Aug. 31.
