Call for Art: “Uncommon Threads”
NOT your Grandmother’s Sewing Circle!
Salem Arts Association presents “Uncommon Threads”, an exhibition that redefines the use of fibers in art. This exhibit goes way beyond the quilting of old. In this exhibition we challenge the artists to discover new inspirations using fibers, fabrics, textiles of any kind, and inventive weaving.
Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber, such as fabric, plastics, wire, thread or yarn, as well as other less likely components. It focuses on the use of materials and the artist’s skill and labor as part of the works' significance, with priority of aesthetic value over utility.
We welcome your artistic interpretation of the theme from assemblages to installations, wall hangings to wearable art. Let your imagination go!
Salem Arts is offering a solo exhibition to one artist member.
Submissions must be delivered by 6:00 PM on Sunday May 28.
Exhibit dates are June 30 - July 30 2017
