Fiber art has become a widely celebrated art medium, one that is ever evolving and crosses the boundaries between fine art and craft. Fiberart International 2019 records the changing definition of textile art and gives the audience a chance to experience works by a diverse group of artists. Internationally respected artists and exhibition jurors, Sonya Clark and Jane Sauer reviewed more than 1,400 art works submitted by artists from 28 countries and across the United States. They refined the selection to 56 pieces bringing together artists from eight countries and 23 states.
The exhibition will be hosted by two respected Pittsburgh arts organizations: Contemporary Craft and the Brew House Association.
