Fibrations Fibre Content 2014

Fibre Content 2014 – Call for Entry

The first Fibre Content Exhibition, held October 27-28, 2012 at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, was a powerful opportunity to show the world the high quality of our fibre artists. The response from the artists was enthusiastic and the quality of exhibited work exceeded all expectations. The organizers are, therefore, happy to announce the second bi-annual Fibre Content Exhibition, to be held at the Burlington Art Centre on September 9-16, 2014!

Juried by Emma Quin, Executive Director of the Ontario Crafts Council, Virginia Eichhorn, Director and Chief Curator of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery, and Sandra Dupret, Dean/Principal of the Fleming College Haliburton Campus, the 2014 show will seek to exhibit the best of contemporary Canadian fibre art — a wide range of works in fibre and mixed media such as fabric, paper, yarn, thread and various mixed materials.

In organizing Fibre Content 2014, Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Central Canada Division is joined by a wider number of guilds: Burlington Fibre Arts Guild, Burlington Handweavers and Spinners Guild, Burlington Hooking Craft Guild, Connections Fibre Artists, Grand Guild of Fibre Artists, Group of Eight Fibre Artists and Oakville Fibre Arts Guild.

The entries are open to members of SAQA Central Canada and the participating guilds, as well as non-members who, if accepted, will be willing to join SAQA. Original artwork must have been completed within the last five years and must be the result of independent effort. Works, framed or unframed, must be ready to be hung. Before entering you artwork, please read rules and requirements in our online entry form carefully.
