       Call For Entries: Renegade Fiber   website

National Call For Art RENEGADE FIBER Marin Museum of Contemporary Art Novato, CA Deadline for entries: Friday, April 21, 2017 Open to all U.S. resident artists 18 and over. Online entry only. Prospectus and details here: This exhibit is open to all fiber art. For the purposes of this exhibition, fiber art is defined as artwork that uses natural or synthetic pliable elements as a major material, and emphasizes art over craft. This exhibition encourages fiber art submissions that further the distance between traditional woven art (tapestries, weavings) and their work through unique or novel approaches in technique, material, or subject matter. We encourage the rebels, rogues and renegades of fiber art whose work can be found at the very edge of the genre. Juror: Richard Elliott Elliott is Associate Professor and former program chair in the Textiles program at California College of the Arts. He is a practicing artist whose own work involves image transfer and digital processes onto paper, fabric, and sausage casings, investigating the abstract beauty of cellular structures, systems, and patterns hidden within the human body.
