The Foothills Art Center in Golden (809 15th Street, Golden, 303-279-3922) is hosting Woven Journeys, which was organized by Kathy Spoering and highlights her work along with that of other regional fiber artists, including Karen Benjamin, Mary Dieterich, James Koehler, Sarah Swett, Nancy Taylor, and Irwin and Lisa Trujillo. A meet-the-artists reception will be held on Friday, July 2, from 7 to 9 p.m.; the exhibit closes July 11.

Even the most avid fiber fans would find themselves in tatters trying to attend all these shows, let alone the dozens of others around the area. And the number of First Friday receptions on July 2 will make your head spin. As a result, the HGA has arranged a gallery crawl for conferees beginning at 7 p.m.; the rest of us are left to our own devices. Happy shuttling.
