felt :: feutre 2013
FELT fashion- Wearable Art Show

Fashion Show Gala September 27, 2013

felt :: feutre is curating a juried Felt Fashion & Wearable Art Show featuring the best and most exciting work being created by Canadian fibre artists and fashion designers working with felt.

We are looking for fantastic wearable art and fashion design that pushes the boundaries of what can be made and worn with felt.

Bold, dramatic, enchanting, exciting, exotic, elegant.

Headwear, accessories, garments, footwear.

We want to show where Canadian fibre artists can take this medium in the realm of fashion.

We are looking for work that represents the highest qualities of technical execution, and artistic /design sensibilities.

Wearable art pieces can be created using mixed media techniques but must have a strong and recognizable traditionally (wet) felted or needlefelted component.

This work will remain on display after the live show for the duration on the felt :: feutre event.

:: Open to artists living and working in Canada, and Canadian citizens currently living abroad.
:: Entries must be original work completed after May 1, 2011.
:: Collaborative works will be considered as a single entry. Artists submitting both collaborative and individual works must apply separately.
:: Work must be original in concept and design and not be the result of a class or workshop.
:: All work must be created primarily using traditional (wet) or needlefelting techniques.
:: Work other than that submitted and chosen by the jury may not be substituted.
:: Work will be insured while on exhibit and during the show.
:: A 40% commission on retail sales will be retained.

ENTRY FEE $25 non-refundable for up to three (3) entries must accompany the application.
