What inspires the construction of contemporary fiber work? What drives the creation of art using fiber techniques and materials? How are artists informed and inspired by this medium? Why fiber now? The Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh’s 2014 member’s exhibition, Construct, attempts to answer these questions.

The exhibit features current works by artists utilizing fiber and fiber techniques who, through unique interpretation, construct their own answers. With a variety of mediums and applications the resulting display is a vast array of visual forms. These pieces of contemporary fiber art, when presented together, not only answer questions, they begin a new conversation.
