Ten years ago Wendy Carpenter started traveling to Mexico and Central America. Currently her focus is in Guatemala teaching the indigenous woman how to design, sew and market their hand-woven “Ikat” fabric. She works for three months in Guatemala and sells the finished products at her Fish Creek gallery/studio Interfibers to support the project. The UU Gallery exhibit will feature her 2013 wrap dress design resulting from this collaboration.
UU Gallery hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 1 – 3 pm and Sunday from 11 am – 12:30 pm. The UU Gallery is located at 10341 Highway 42, just south of the Shops at Green Gables, Ephraim. For more information, visit uufdc.com or call 920.854.7559.
