Fibrations 2018 Fibre Content - Travelling Exhibition

2018 Fibre Content

The 2018 Fibre Content Exibition was our Fourth Biennial Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Fibre Art. It showcased 90 works by 60 artists from across Ontario, in fabric, paper, yarn, thread and mixed media materials. The goal, as always, was to raise the profile, awareness and acceptance of Fibre Art as a true art form.

The Premiere was, again, at the Art Gallery of Burlington, from September 6th to September 16th, 2018. A selection of 40 pieces forms a smaller version to travel to seven Northern Ontario locations into 2020!

Returning: Interactive Display

We have expanded our Interactive Display of sample touch boards in the adjoining hallway to the Lee Chin Family Gallery. These allow you to get an up-close sense of the art in the show.

New This Year: Artist Talks and Hands-On Events!

These sold-out events were offered on both Saturdays of the show. Limited seating was 100 for Artist Talks and 20 for Hands-On Events. View/download the full program (PDF).
