Fiber can be and do so many things. For artists – it is a medium and a process – it is natural and synthetic – it is crafted by hand and industrially machined – it is everywhere and in everything – (like Pima Cotton) it is the fabric of our lives.
ON THE DESERT: An Exploration of Fibers will take to the desert in search of traditional and experimental artworks that are made of, on, and about any and all things fiber while simultaneously exploring (perhaps, redefining) the definition(s) of Fiber Art.
Artists are asked to employ every fiber of their being and contribute art works that are focused on the very fibers they are made with. The possibilities are endless. Artists from the region are invited to submit 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional works in any media for consideration in this curated exhibition.
