Fibrations Third Biennial Fibre Content Exhibition

Third Biennial Fibre Content Exhibition at the AGB

Fibre art works bring a new perspective to spark your interest from every viewing angle. To see what is happening in fibre art, come to the 3rd biennial juried Fibre Content Show at the Art Gallery of Burlington from September 8th to the 18th. There will be 125 pieces from 80 different artists on display over two weekends and for 11 days.

A special part of the show this year is the Interactive Exhibit. Artists have made numerous samples of their techniques and style which you can handle and examine to understand how the work is done — a true learning experience!

There will also be a series of Artist Talks on how these pieces are made, which are free of charge and open to everyone:

Dianne GibsonSaturday, Sept. 10, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Maggie VanderweitWednesday, Sept. 14, from 10:00am to 11:00am
Mita GiacominiSunday, Sept. 18 from 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The Opening Reception, when you can meet many of the artists with works in the exhibition, is on Sunday, September 11, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm.

Some of the Jurors may join us at the Reception: William Hodge – retired after 40 years as Textile Professor at OCAD University, Virginia Eichhorn – Director and Chief Curator at Tom Thomson Art Gallery and Rachel Miller – Textile Studio Head and Professor at Craft & Design Program, Sheridan College.

Admission is free and catalogues will be available to purchase. Please join us from September 8 to 18, 2016 at the Art Gallery of Burlington. Visit AGB website for hours and directions.
