Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber Art

Check out this site. The last Fiberart International was in 2004 and was a fabulous show. Images of the winners from the last show are shown on the site.

Submissions from artists around the world reflect a wide range of work related to the fiber medium, including expressions rooted in traditional craft materials, structure, processes and history as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between fiber, painting, sculpture, conceptual and installation art.

Off to teach class at Midwest Basketry Focus

Picture above shows Blue Beak Anteater in process, this is about one-third done. Gives you an idea of the process involved in creating my work. Picture below is the finished work. More pictures can be found at my web.

Tsuguo Yanai's Fiber Art

Tsuguo Yanai is an award-winning Japanese artist who works in the medium of paper work, or fiber art. Though engaged in a variety of creative endeavours, his main emphasis is on creating installations under the theme of "Matter and Memory."

The common thread in all of his works, from prints to installations, is that they involve working with the medium of fiber, which is the basis of paper.
