Asian American Craftswomen
Over ten years ago, two women artists active in the Asian American community, Lora Jo Foo and Terry Ow-Wing, discussed a common dream: to hold an arts and crafts fair featuring the work of Asian American craftswomen to benefit the nonprofits in the community. In 2012 this dream became a reality when Lora Jo hosted a highly successful fair at her Oakland home, along with eight other Asian American women artists.
This year's sixth Asian American Craftswomen Holiday Crafts Fair will benefit Asian Immigrant Women Advocates (AIWA). We are honored to support AIWA, which has a long and successful history of empowering low-income women and youth.
Please join us on Sunday, December 3, at AIWA's Oakland Chinatown headquarters in the Asian Resource Center to enjoy the unique fusion of the feminine and Asian and Western sensibilities that is distinctive to the artwork of Asian American craftswomen.
