The definition of Fiber Art has evolved greatly over the past few years, opening up a new range of possibilities to artists working in various disciplines.

Fiber artists are incorporating more mediums into their work, creating unique artwork that reaches across previously defined boundaries. Artists from other mediums are discovering the infinite possibilities that fiber can offer, creating hybrids that are eye catching and moving.

Blurred Boundaries seeks these artworks for a week long exhibition honoring the ingenuity of Mixed Media Fiber Art.
