Exploring the themes and techniques of Fiber Art, our Fantastic Fibers Show/Exhibit celebrates the heritage of the past as well as all the ways artists of today are taking these age-old art forms to a new level. You may be a professional, an amateur, an enthusiast, or just an artist who enjoys sharing your talents with others. The Joe invites artists of all skill levels to enter their works of fiber art for jury consideration for the Fantastic Fibers Show.
WHAT IS FIBER ART?
Fiber Art is art that incorporates natural or man-made fibrous materials which can be made into art. This may include but not limited to wall hangings, tapestries, and objects that are braided, coiled, knotted, knitted, twined, or wrapped. Fabrics are also fiber, some are hand-dyed and manipulated into works of art, some into wearable art, incorporating thread, yarn, string, rope, felt, leather and even beads. Basket weaving is also a form of fiber art and artists might use such items as leaves, plant stems, grasses and bark. Paper making is another form of fiber art using organic materials as well as recycled papers and fabrics. Any of these works of art may be two or three dimensional.
