Main Gallery

August 3-28, 2015

Natural Dye Showcase at the Mendocino Art Center, August 3-28, 2015, invites artists to submit contemporary fiber works featuring elements that have been created with natural dyes. Techniques may include wall-hangings, art quilts, baskets, embroidery, rugs, knitting, crochet, hand-made paper and other forms of fiber art. The exhibition seeks to highlight excellence in contemporary use of natural dyes, considered in the light of their rich and skillful use through the centuries and across the planet.

• Work can utilize any fiber technique and must include significant elements that have been dyed with natural dyes (derived from plant, other organic sources, or minerals). The juror will make the final decision on whether submissions are appropriate to the exhibition theme.
• Work must be original, created after 2011.
• Size limitation: Wall-hung pieces (including wearable art) may be no longer than 72 inches on the longest side; free-standing or free-hanging works may take up no more than four square feet of floor space.

Juror: Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada, president of the World Shibori Network and founder of Slow Fiber Studios.

Entry Fees
$15 for each entry. Up to three works may be entered.
