Macrame is having a moment, and it has come a long way from when we were making ill-advised hemp necklaces and clumsy plant hangers for our moms. Proof of that comes in the shape of the pieces constructed by Marge Farmer-Page, are displayed in all their breadth at Amapola Gallery (205 Romero NW) throughout the month of May. Farmer-Page creates macrame pieces as well as quilts. Additionally, ceramic works by Iris McDowell are up for viewing and purchase. Works in all mediums are on display at the Old Town collective art space during this two-woman show titled Thrown and Sewn. A formal reception is held for First Friday—that is, Friday, May 4—with the artists in house, as well as many of the other talented creatives that contribute to the space. Visit the gallery and view these diverse works from 4 to 7pm.
