Healdsburg Center for the Arts invites artists nationwide to join us for this fiber exhibition. Intertwined [fiber from one extreme to the other] honors all forms of fiber art expressions, from the humble woven basket to the abstract sculpture and from the traditional tapestry to the conceptual works with a social statement. All materials – paper, wool, cotton, metal, wood, plastic etc. are acceptable as long as there is a reference to fiber and its intertwined structure. Fiber works have many modes and techniques – weaving, paper-making, felting, dyeing, surface design, sewing, quilting and more. All are acceptable as long as the work is unique and awe-inspiring.
