Excellence in Fibers is an annual juried exhibition from Fiber Art Now magazine. Out of the exhibition’s 40 artists featured in the magazine’s Winter 2023 issue, 16 artists selected by guest curator Demetri Broxton are exhibited at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. Featuring works from the past four years, these artists showcase contemporary innovation through their techniques while working to address the most pressing issues of present-day society.
Fiber is a fascinating material for an artist to engage as their primary medium – it simultaneously connects to ancient forms of art making and functional craft as well as new and exciting forms as evidenced by the works selected for the Excellence in Fibers exhibition. -Demetri Broxton, Curator of Excellence in Fibers VIII
