Fiber Without Borders at the Glen Arbor Arts Center

  • About

    Come celebrate Fiber Without Borders, a juried exhibition of 2D and 3D work exploring fiber materials in fresh, original ways. A reception to launch the exhibition is on Friday, September 13th from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Glen Arbor Arts Center. 

    A revolution in the use of fiber materials, from wool, to paper, to plastic, to fruit skins, as the basis for art making began in the 1960s and has continued unabated to the present time. Fiber Without Borders exhibits contemporary work that:

    • Acknowledges fiber’s functional roots and contexts, but does not stop there
    • Examines contemporary social issues
    • Finds innovative uses of fiber materials
    • Moves beyond the expected applications and/or re-examines the conventional ways in which we understand fiber to discover new contexts

    The Fiber Without Borders exhibition runs from Friday, September 13th through Thursday, November 7th.
