Fibrations Third Biennial Fibre Content Exhibition

The Third Biennial Fibre Content Exhibition

We are happy to continue our collaboration with the Art Gallery of Burlington. The 2016 Fibre Content Exhibition will be running for 11 viewing days — from September 8 to September 18, 2016!

As in 2014, the show is a collaborative effort of artists from Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Central Canada Division, 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 Artists.

Entries

The entries are now CLOSED. They were open to members of participating guilds, as well as others who – if their work is accepted – are willing to become members of SAQA. Original artwork must have been completed within the last five years and must be the result of independent effort.

Our official Call for Entry (PDF), remains available for your reference.

Jury

The 2016 Fibre Content is juried by William Hodge, Virginia Eichhorn and Rachel Miller. William Hodge retired after over 40 years as Professor at OCAD University; he currently works out of Armure Studios, Stoney Creek. Virginia Eichhorn – returning as the juror – is the Director and Chief Curator at Tom Thomson Art Gallery. Rachel Miller is the Textile Studio Head and Professor at Craft & Design Program, Sheridan College.


Remember, donations to Fibrations are always welcome to assist with our continued efforts to promote fibre art. Purchase of show catalogues is a good way to support the cause.

If you don’t already have them, we still have a limited supply of our 2012 and 2014 catalogues. They make a perfect gift, too! Only $15.00 for both (shipping included).
