The Secret Show Committee serves to help you redefine your assumptions when it comes to a boring, old art event! They believe art is hands on, in your face, and fully interactive. The Secret Show is about breaking down the barriers of what you think art galleries are. This one night only event mixes art, food, music and libations all with the chance for guests to be part of several live creative processes.

We can't tell you what will happen and we can't tell you where it will happen- yet. That is the secret. Even we don't know!

Check back often for hints about 2017's Secret Show!

The Eighth Annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival will be January 25th-28th, 2018!

In 2011, the University Museum working with the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council hoped to create coordinated exhibits that would reach beyond the museum walls and into the community. The partnership focused on an upcoming exhibit of Gees Bend Quilts, identifying community partners in the local quilters guild and Oxford's curated fiber shop, Knit1. This coordinated effort launched the Oxford Fiber Arts Festival showcasing exhibits by local fiber artists, a fiber market, workshops, and demonstrations. An immediate success and a welcome addition driving out the winter doldrums with an energetic gathering of fiber fans.

In 2016, Patsy Englehart and Lynn Wells of Knit 1 passed the baton to local fiber artist and regular vendor in the fest, Andi Bedsworth, who is now coordinating the festival through the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council. In its eight years the festival strives to bring cutting edge contemporary and traditional fiber arts to the Powerhouse for a multi-day event that includes lectures, demonstrations, classes by experienced teachers and children’s activities. In its mission to educate, inform, and inspire fiber enthusiasts, practitioners, and visitors, the festival has become a yearly favorite among locals and visitors who come from surrounding states to join in the festivities.
