Berkeley Art Center (CA), Call for San Francisco Bay Area Artists*, Thread Heads: New Bay Area Fiber Art
Deadline: August 20th, 2017
From their call: Artists 18 years old and over who live and/or work in the *nine San Francisco Bay Area counties are eligible to apply. This exhibit is open to all fiber art. For the purposes of this exhibition, fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber and other components, such as fabric or yarn. It focuses on the materials and on the process as part of the works’ significance, and prioritizes aesthetic value over utility. Techniques such as quilting, embroidery, knitting, crochet, weaving, and felting are welcome as long as the final work communicates a message, emotion or meaning beyond just the literal meaning of the object.
Juried by three practicing textile artists who also have extensive curatorial experience: Marion Coleman, Karen Hampton, and Tali Weinburg.
