Excellence in Fibers was originally designed to be a print-only, juried exhibition. With EIF 2016, we were able to add on an exhibition at the New Bedford Art Museum, New Bedford, Mass. (www.newbedfordart.org). This was an exciting new development for us. You can imagine that it also posed some tough choices, because the exhibition was not developed with the New Bedford Art Museum in mind, so the space couldn’t fit all of the accepted works. We selected as many as we could, and made sure our communications were clear that not all selected work could fit. Please accept my apologies for not being able to accept them all. Next year, we will start early and work to match the print exhibition with a full-scale museum exhibition. That would ensure every artists who was juried into EIF will also be able to show their work (if its available).
Here is the list of artists whose work we hope to fit into the exhibition.
The opening reception is January 29, 2017, 3:00-5:00. I hope as many of you as possible can attend!
