Exhibition Theme: The Artist’s Question ... Answered in Fiber
Creating a work of art begins with a question. The artist might ask: What idea is important for me to communicate?
What concept do I want to explore? What emotions do I want to experience and evoke in the viewer? What interests me? Or perhaps the artist might contemplate: Why do we...?; What would happen if...?; What is the meaning of...?”
Each work of art will resolve or examine the question(s) asked by the artist. Answers will unfold differently as artists create compositions which address their unique queries. Content of the work may be representational or abstract. The style may be narrative, commentary, or purely aesthetic. There are no other limits on content or method.
Artists are asked to begin their artist statement with the question(s) inspiring the work entered. Statements will focus on concepts, not media or technique.
All submitted works must be EXACTLY 30”W; Height may vary from 30” – 60”. No rigid, mounted, or framed entries will be considered.
