Fiber is Art, Too

Exhibition Dates: July 22 – August 19, 2022
Submissions due: June 24, 2022, 11:59 p.m.
Location: CCAC @ Short Vine Gallery (2728 Short Vine)

The Clifton Cultural Arts Center is delighted to host its second fiber art exhibition, Fiber is Art, Too.  In 2019, CCAC presented a curated exhibit titled Fiber IS Art, bringing together a wide range of artists who approach fiber in myriad modes, aesthetics, and styles. The high caliber of these works helped to dispel the notion that fiber work is craft rather than art. Fiber artists manipulate a variety of materials consisting of natural or synthetic fibers, creating works that encompass emotion, sensory experiences, and beauty. This juried exhibition opportunity is open to all artists working with fiber in any of its forms. All submitted images are required to be high-res.

All fiber-based works are welcome. The exhibition will be juried by CCAC staff, board and TBA outside jurors.

To submit works for consideration, e-mail the images and information to fiberisart.ccac@gmail.com

Technical specification below:

  • Artists may enter a maximum of five pieces of art for jury consideration. Digital images of the art must be submitted via email to fiberisart.ccac@gmail.com with “Fiber is Art” written in the subject line. No original art will be accepted for jury submission.
  • JPEG Images: Each JPEG image of art must be labeled as follows: artist’s first name initial, last name initial, underscore, and title of work. i.e. HB_The Lonely Tree.jpeg The jpeg image size must be appropriate for viewing on a computer monitor.
  • Word Document must be included containing contact information: the artist’s name, address, phone number (s), and email address. The same document must include information for each piece: title, size, medium and price.

Deadline: June 24 at 11:59 PM

Eligibility:

  • All images submitted must be the artist’s own work.
  • All submitted images are required to be high-res. Please contact emily.versoza@cliftonculturalarts.org with any questions about digital images.
