The Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA) and East Carolina University's School of Art and Design have joined forces to organize, promote, and host a juried student exhibition of trends and creative works in fiber art. This first triennial exhibition will honor Edward S. Lambert, MFA (1940-2011) renowned educator, artist, mentor to graduate and undergraduate students at the University of Georgia, and advisor to SEFAA. A solo exhibition of Lambert's work will be shown in Gray Gallery in
conjunction with “Spotlight on Student Fiber Trends."

Lambert's outstanding contributions in the field of education and textile design place him among the most respected and innovative artists in his field. This student exhibition is due, in part, to his encouragement and inspirational leadership and we are thrilled to present some of his creative work and to honor his legacy.

Any undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in a fiber/textile program or independently pursuing a study of fibers/textiles in the Southeast (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Tennessee) is eligible to apply.

First Place - $800
Second Place - $500
Third Place - $300
Honorable Mentions - awarded at the discretion of the juror.

$15 - Members of the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA)
$25 - Non-members (includes 1-yr student membership in SEFAA)

Each student may submit up to three entries. Submitted work must be original in design and must have been completed since January 1, 2010. Entries must utilize fiber techniques (interlaced, felted, stitched, dyed, coiled, knotted, printed, spun, woven, etc.) and can be of any material. Only individual work will be considered; no group projects will be accepted.

Accepted work must be received ready to display and must include all display hardware with clear hanging instructions. Students who propose an installation work must be prepared to personally install the work at ECU and to remove it after the exhibition closes.
