Studio 222 was established in 1999 by Mary Stevens of Waverly, Alabama. The group brings together fiber artists from Alabama and Georgia. They meet once a month in Auburn, Alabama to share knowledge and skills and promote fiber arts interest in the community. The artists explore, experiment and enjoy working in fiber and related art forms. 

The Art Gallery exhibition, “Seasons & Cityscapes” features a variety of pieces ranging from cityscapes in fabric to abstracts of seasons and conceptual ideas, all of which incorporate the use of fiber.

Since its inception, Studio 222 has exhibited annually in The Art Gallery at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center gallery. The artists produce a wide variety of 2-dimensional and a few 3-dimensional fiber artworks and enjoy experimenting with different fibers, materials and techniques.
