Overview

Though the National Quilt Museum opened its doors in 1991, Paducah’s fiber arts community is one that began to flourish around 2005 as likeminded creatives, like Aynex Mercado who moved to Paducah with the City’s Artist Relocation Program, began to seek the fellowship of other artists who were working outside the scope of traditional quilt designs.

Over the past 13 years, the Paducah Fiber Artists have showcased a wide variety of textile artforms each month, including wearables, weavings, basketry and much more. “NOW & THEN” showcases the journey, the friendships, the influences, and the individual styles of each of the artists—including the early founders, friends who have moved away, and the regulars and recently arrived artists of today. Whether near or far, now or then, this intertwined and ever evolving network of talented individuals will forever be the “Paducah” Fiber Artists.
