Reception: Fiber Without Borders

September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come celebrate Fiber Without Borders, a juried exhibition of 2D and 3D work exploring fiber materials in fresh, original ways. A reception to launch the exhibition is Friday, September 13, 6-8 pm at the Glen Arbor Arts Center, 6031 S. Lake Street, Glen Arbor.

A revolution in the use of fiber materials – from wool, to paper, to plastic, to fruit skins — as the basis for art making began in the 1960s and has continued unabated to the present time. Fiber Without  Borders exhibits contemporary work that:

  • Acknowledges fiber’s functional roots and contexts, but does not stop there.
  • Examines contemporary social issues.
  • Finds innovative uses of fiber materials.
  • Moves beyond the expected applications and/or re-examines the conventional ways in which we understand fiber to discover new contexts.

Fiber Without Borders continues through November 7.
