A quilted kapa cloth piece by Wendeanne Ke’aka Stitt, who has been collaborating with the Academy of Hawaiian Arts to create kapa cloth for five pa’u hula (skirts), was selected for an international fiber arts exhibit opening at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts on October 23 at 6:00 p.m. The exhibit, Fiber Arts VII runs through November 28, 2015.  Stitt’s piece in the exhibit, Kanaka Lu’u I Ka Hohonu (Merman)is a machine-stitched quilt of hand-made kapa cloth dyed with black walnut hulls in a shape that is inspired by the malo–a loincloth worn by men.

Pictured with this announcement is one of the skirts Stitt has created for the Academy of Hawaiian Arts performers.
