The Central Iowa Textile Artists (CITA) came into being in 2003, when six people with an interest in textile arts decided to meet on a monthly basis to encourage and challenge each other.
Today there are thirteen members of this artists' group. Of the thirteen, three are published authors, four have pattern companies, six teach classes in various techniques, two have hand-dyed fabric and/or clothing companies, and all are award-winning artists.
Current group members are: Ilene Bartos, Janet Bergeron, Jan Hall, Hollie Hart, Barbara Jones, Rebecca Kemble, Linda Knierim, Angela Lawrence, Jean O'Donnell, Janet Pittman, Barb Stewart, Jeanne Stilley, and Wendy Read.
he Ankeny Art Center is located in a city park at SW Third and State Front Road. Gallery hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 9 am to 1 pm, Thursday 4 pm to 7 pm, Friday 9am to 1pm and Saturday 9 am to noon. The Center is closed Sunday and Monday.
