Fibrations 2018 Fibre Content - Travelling Exhibition

2018 Fibre Content

The 2018 Fibre Content Exibition was our Fourth Biennial Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Fibre Art. It showcased 90 works by 60 artists from across Ontario, in fabric, paper, yarn, thread and mixed media materials. The goal, as always, was to raise the profile, awareness and acceptance of Fibre Art as a true art form.

The Premiere was, again, at the Art Gallery of Burlington, from September 6th to September 16th, 2018.

This year we have expanded our Interactive Display of sample touch boards, to allow visitors to get an up-close sense of the art in the show. We have also continued with our Artist Talks. This year’s featured artists were Tracy Lawko, Gunnel Hag, Mita Giacomini and Pat Hertzberg.

New this year, we held two Hands-On Events. These sold-out events were hosted by Al Cote and Chandra Rice. You can view/download the full program of Artist Talks and Hands-On Events (PDF).
