Around The Block

Deadline: April 15, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Around The Block
7th Annual Fiber Arts Stroll

Sister, Oregon
July 3 – July 11, 2010

The seventh annual Around the Block Fiber Arts Stroll is THE kick-off event for a week of festivities for the 35th Anniversary celebration of Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. Around the Block, the premier art stroll in Sisters, Oregon is a fiber-arts stroll featuring artists, demonstrations and special exhibits of textile related arts and quilting. Artists are hosted by sponsoring businesses in downtown Sisters. The goal of the event is to increase the awareness of and to showcase fiber arts to the public while honoring the work of fiber artists from a broad range of mediums. The event will provide artists with a quality environment to present their work to the public. Around the Block would not be possible without the involvement and support of the Presenting Sponsor, High Desert Gallery, as well as strong support of businesses throughout Sisters.

We are seeking artists who specialize in any fiber-related art and who are interested in showing their work. Artists are expected to be present at the sponsors’ business to chat with visitors during the art stroll. You are welcome to sell your work and we encourage demonstrations & participation. If you have a project the public can make for themselves (you may charge a small fee if necessary), so much the better!

Artists will be selected on the basis of originality of their work, adherence to a “fiber arts” theme and availability to be in attendance at the art stroll. We will match the artist with the business and put you in contact with the business owner or manager to arrange details about space, set up, displaying and selling your work. Our deadline for entries is April 15th. We will notify all entrants of our selections by May 1st.
