The Call for Entry is now closed. There were so many excellent entries and our juror, Sarah Fox, had a challenging time selecting the work which she believes was the best fit for this Exhibition.
We received 246 art entries by 110 artists from around the country. This is an affirmation that fiber art is as important an art medium as we seek to encourage and promote in our organization.
There will be a Special Edition FASA Newsletter out soon to provide you a peek as to what you can expect to see at the in-person Exhibition. The Exhibition will be opening at the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, Texas on October 8th. There will be an opening presentation, more details will be provided soon. The University art gallery will also have regular hours Monday through Friday (except for holidays) where you will be able to take the time to view it in person through November 12, 2021.
Please check back at our website in a few weeks for more news and information regarding the launch of The Language of Fiber Art Exhibition. The good news is that art never dies, we just need to keep it moving forward.
