Yeiser Art Center is now accepting entries for the FANTASTIC FIBERS 2018 international juried exhibition. One of Yeiser Art Center’s most engaging and innovative international exhibitions, FANTASTIC FIBERS seeks to showcase a wide range of outstanding contemporary works related to the fiber medium.

Contemporary and innovative works created with fiber as the primary medium or concept are welcome. This exhibition is open to all artists 18 years and over working in the field of fiber art. All work submitted must be original, completed in the last three years and not previously exhibited in a FANTASTIC FIBERS exhibition. There are no size restrictions. Up to five entries per artist are permitted with an entry fee of $25 per piece. All selected artworks will be featured in full color catalog produced by Yeiser Art Center for sale during the exhibition. Selected artists for exhibit will have the opportunity to purchase a copy of the exhibition catalog at a discounted rate. FANTASTIC FIBERS 2018 will be on display at Yeiser Art Center from April 14 to June 9, 2018.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR MULTIPLE ENTRIES:
Artists may submit up to 5 distinct artwork entries with 3 images each entry.

HISTORY:
The show began in 1987 as a wearable art show but has evolved over the years to include a compelling mix of traditional and non-traditional works created from natural or synthetic fibers, and work that addresses the subject or medium of fiber. The FANTASTIC FIBERS 2018 exhibit is an American Quilter’s Society (AQS) sanctioned event and selected works will be seen by thousands of viewers. Paducah becomes a Mecca for quilters and quilt enthusiasts each April as more than 30,000 visitors from across the globe attend AQS QuiltWeek. This year’s AQS QuiltWeek dates are April 18 – 21, 2018.

JUROR: Arturo Alonzo Sandoval
Arturo Alonzo Sandoval is a fiber artist whose experimental techniques and expressive interpretations have earned him an international reputation. Arturo is one of Kentucky’s most original, influential and significant artists. Because he creates an extensive collection of work his artwork is everywhere. His work is in the collections of the New York City Museum of Modern Art’s Architecture and Design Collection, as well as galleries and private collections throughout the United States and the world.

What distinguishes me from other artists working in fiber is my choice to mainly explore and recycle twentieth century industrial materials that have been primarily designed as tapes or films. Incorporating them into woven or interlaced webs provides for me permutations for my design concepts which are personalized into a visual vocabulary of the sky, water, landscape; and more recently, issues related to international and domestic politics, terrorism, the total nuclear threat, the cosmic realms, and personal spiritual beliefs.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR MULTIPLE ENTRIES:
Artists may submit up to 5 distinct artwork entries with 3 images each entry. Each submission is $25 and should consist of 1 single artwork represented by 1 to 3 images (multiple full views and/or details may be included). A new application should be completed for each subsequent artwork up to 5 entries in total.
