Fiberart International 2010 is the 20th in a series of triennial juried exhibitions sponsored by the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh, Inc. Chosen by a distinguished panel of artists and curators, Fiberart International 2010 will feature works by established and emerging artists and will provide a unique opportunity to see current trends and innovations in this constantly evolving medium.
Since 1997, the exhibition has been held at two prestigious arts organizations, the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts and the Society for Contemporary Craft. The exhibition will include works by artists from across the world, selected by a panel of three jurors recognized in the field. Cash awards will be made by the Fiberarts Guild, Inc., corporate and private donors. In addition to the catalog, some of the educational components of the project include a docent program and a conference featuring Fiberart International artists.
Fiberart International 2010 seeks to exhibit the best of contemporary art and invites submissions that reflect a wide range of works related to the fiber medium. This juried exhibition of contemporary works of fiber art is recognized among fiber artists around the world as a benchmark exhibition that documents trends and innovations in the field. The goal of the exhibition is to include innovative work rooted in traditional fiber materials, structure, processes and history, as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between fiber and other creative disciplines.
