Can we talk? “The Language of Fiber Art”, is the theme for this year’s FASA’s upcoming annual Exhibition. It is intended to encourage artists to explore the myriad of ways in which they use fiber or cloth as their ‘language’ to express their stories, or design ideas. Through this creative ‘talk’ the artists convey their vision or message to the viewer in ways that are so uniquely done through this medium. Whether it is an art quilt, an art-to-wear garment, a sculptural piece, etc. the fiber or cloth makes it art we all understand and appreciate – a universal language.

Here’s what you need to know about this year’s call for entries:

It will be provided through CaFE, a well recognized art entry platform that has been around for many years, has served many arts organizations (including fiberart groups) and provides safe and secure protection of our data.

They offer online video tutorials that help guide you through the process of 1) Creating your artist profile including a secure login 2) Creating your art portfolio with a description and images of your work and 3) Applying for art calls, including FASA’s, throughout the country. You can also contact them by phone M-F for assistance. Their website is: https://www.callforentry.org.

We invite fiber arts to show us what they have to ‘say’ through their work and we invite everyone to share in viewing the work when the Exhibition is presented in October 2021.
