On that ever-mysterious rubric, “literary fiction”: “It was clever marketing by publishers to set certain contemporary fiction apart and declare it Literature—and therefore Important, Art, and somehow better than other writing … Jane Austen’s works are described as literary fiction. This is nonsense … Austen never for a moment imagined she was writing Literature. Posterity decided that—not her, not John Murray, not even her contemporary readership. She wrote fiction, to entertain and to make money.”

    Call to Artists: Fiber Hawaii 2014 →

    hawaiicraftsmen:

    “In, Of or About Fiber” plus a special “Inspired” challenge

    Hawaii Craftsmen is happy to announce the 2014 biennial Fiber Hawaii exhibit will take place in November 2014 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School Linekona Gallery. Entry date will be November 2, juror and details to be announced later.

    This exhibit will feature works “in, of or about” fiber art. Entrants may use any media as long as it incorporates a fiber or textile technique or sensibility. Woven glass, clay or wire, handmade paper, traditional weaving, batik, and fabric painting are some possible techniques that would be eligible. Photography, traditional paintings or prints would generally not be acceptable.

    This year we are also challenging entrants to be inspired by a work of art in the Honolulu Museum of Art collection. This “Inspired” challenge is an optional theme. Pick a textile, sculpture, painting or any other work that inspires you and create a piece “in, of or about fiber” based on that inspirational piece.  Sara Oka, Honolulu Museum of Art textile curator, is willing to offer special “behind the scenes” tours of the textile collection if there is interest.  Look for future announcements regarding dates and times of inspiring tours.

    For further information contact Liz Train at lizabethtrain@hotmail.com
