Call to Artists

FIBER FORWARD 2020: BIENNIAL EXHIBITION
Call for Submissions

Fiber works have evolved throughout history from utilitarian usage as clothing, for warmth and traditional décor, to innovative, “outside the box” and nonfunctional uses (sculptural, conceptual, installation-oriented), particularly in the realm of contemporary art and practice. This exhibition calls for works in all fiber media and techniques that reflect the best current explorations by contemporary American artists.

Exhibit Dates: June 12-July 19, 2020

Juror: Marcia Young, Publisher/Founder of Fiber Art Now, a quarterly print and digital magazine for the contemporary fiber art community, and the Fiber Art Network, which supports artists, collectors, enthusiasts, and leaders in the fiber art and textiles community.

Eligibility: This exhibition is open to works in all fiber media, including mixed media. Open to U.S. residents.

Awards: $500 in prizes to be awarded by the juror.

Entry Deadline: April 24, 2020
