Exhibit: Fiber Without Borders

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

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.
