Call to Artists – seeking unique and contemporary expressions of fiber and textile. With unlimited possibilities your imagination and creativity can take you anywhere.
“Unrestrained,” will run from April 11 to May 23, 2015.
Application DEADLINE is Feb. 21 and the entry fee is $35 (helps to offset exhibition costs for the gallery at 526 Washington St., Reading).
According to Rebekah Ritter, gallery founder and co-director of the ‘some things looming’ Fiber Arts Gallery in Reading, throughout time and across cultures, the exploration of craft has been infinite.
Fiber art has played a major role in society—from the functional to the non-functional. Unrestrained as the title implies, will place few artistic limits on the submissions for the show.
