“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.
