Fibrations Fibre Content 2014

The Second Biennial Fibre Content Exhibition


The response from the artists has been enthusiastic and the 2014 Fibre Content Exhibition promises to be an excellent follow up to the inaugural 2012 show. This year’s show will feature the best of contemporary Canadian fibre art — a wide range of works in fibre and mixed media: fabric, paper, yarn, thread and various mixed materials.

The show will be held at the Art Gallery of Burlington (formerly the Burlington Art Centre), 1333 Lakeshore Road, Burlington, on September 9-16, 2014. Admission is free, and Gallery Hours are: Monday to Thursday 9:00am to 10:00pm, Friday and Saturday 9:00am to 5:00pm, and Sunday noon to 5:00pm.

The 2014 Fibre Content Exhibition is juried by Emma Quin, Executive Director of the Ontario Crafts Council, Virginia Eichhorn, Director and Chief Curator of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery, and Sandra Dupret, Dean/Principal of the Fleming College Haliburton Campus

In the Second Fibre Content Show, Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Central Canada Division is joined by Burlington Fibre Arts Guild, Burlington Handweavers and Spinners Guild, Burlington Hooking Craft Guild, Connections Fibre Artists, Grand Guild of Fibre Artists, Group of Eight Fibre Artists and Oakville Fibre Arts Guild.

The jurors are now reviewing all 208 submissions – a difficult task given the quality and variety of work that has been entered. Once the jury process is complete, a full colour catalogue of the show will be produced. The catalogue will include pictures of all the pieces in the show, featuring the three Juror Choices. This will be a keepsake item, as was the 2012 catalogue!
