Infinity Art Gallery ~ Fiber Art

Deadline: April 15, 2011; 8:00 pm PST (ONLINE)

Fiber Art
Infinity Art Gallery
May 15, 2011 (Grand Opening)

Open to all fiber artists. Fiber art is a style of fine art which uses textiles such as fabric, yarn, and natural and synthetic fibers. It encompasses a wide variety of styles, including art quilts, wall hangings, sculpture and other 3 dimensional art, weavings and mixed media. Fiber art works are works of art that communicate some sort of message, emotion or meaning and go beyond just the literal meaning of the materials. Pieces that follow patterns without doing anything more, are not considered works of fiber art.

Finalists will be selected for artistic excellence, which includes concept and mastery of technique. Artwork will be selected solely on its own merit without regard to the artist's name, geographic location, national home or any other factor outside of the quality of their artwork. It is our intention to choose the best art in terms of composition, concept, content and overall excellence, from a wide range of styles. We intend for the show to be well rounded and to include a wide range of artistic
expression. The number of pieces selected for exhibit is determined by jury and gallery discretion. The final number may vary according to juror selection.

All exhibits take place online at www.InfinityArtGallery.com and showcase artwork by international contemporary artists. Jury selected artwork will be exhibited for three months online at Infinity Art Gallery.

All eligible entries submitted by artists may be displayed online during the call-to-artists. Artists may choose not to participate in the pre-exhibit show and will have the option for jurors only when they submit their work.

All juried exhibits are open for artists everywhere. Artists must be 18 years of age or older. All works submitted must be created within 36 months prior to the deadline. The original design and concept must have been created by the submitting artist, have been created without the use of a kit, and may not have been created under supervision or instruction.

Craftwork will not be accepted. The exploration of traditional craft materials used in an artistic realm is acceptable, but will not be accepted if the work is deemed to be a ‘craft’ piece. One way artists may determine if their work is craft is to inquire whether the piece is poetic in ‘concept’ and ‘emotional response’.

Jurors: Diane Chaudiere, Jae McDonald, and Hilde Morin

Submitting Entries:
Artists pay an entry fee of $25 USD to submit 1 or 2 works of art. Artists may enter more than once.
