Threads -- National Call for Fiber Art

Deadline: September 4, 2013 (ONLINE)

National Call for Fiber Art
Tubac Center of the Arts

Tubac, AZ
October 18 – November 17, 2013

"Threads” is an exhibition that presents the versatility and innovative use of fiber in contemporary art. Historically, fiber art has been viewed as “women’s work”, sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting. Contemporary artists have moved beyond the gender specific perceptions with innovative approaches to using fiber materials in art. Addressing the gender based perceptions of the historical context of fiber art may be the subject matter for fiber artists as well as art that explores relationships between fiber and other creative disciplines. Submissions will be considered for technique, skill, artistic content and innovative use of fiber as an art medium.
