Deadline: July 29th, 2016, midnight PST

We welcome the opportunity to support works that embody diverse cultural perspectives. “Northern California artists” are defined as artists working and living in one of the following areas: San Jose area north to the California border and east to the California border.

Only online entries with digitally uploaded images will be accepted. If proposing a site-specific installation please include a brief description of concept in your “Statement specific to entry”. A visit to the Museum gallery prior to entry would be advisable. Entry fee.

Arizona State University School of Art, Call for Fiber Artists: It Took a While

ittookawhileArizona State University School of Art, Call for Fiber Artists: It Took a While

Deadline: October 1st, 2016

Fiber is traditionally seen as a labor­-intensive practice. A common question for artists is, “How long did that take?” It Took A While will highlight time through practice, multiples, and mediums, considering both the counting of time through motions and the loss of felt time to meditative practice.

The original artwork submitted must be predominantly related to fiber practices and made within the last three years. Works must relate to the theme of time. It Took A While will culminate in a catalogue of the accepted works along with artist statements from each artist. The exhibition will be held in Harry Wood Gallery with a goal of exposing students and the community to a broader understanding of fibers in the contemporary art realm.

Exhibition dates: November 8th – 11th, 2016
Harry Wood Gallery, Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona
Hosted by Fiber Arts Network
Juried by Molly Koehn and Erika Lynne Hanson
