Fiberart International has chosen Liz Alpert Fay’s “Food for Thought” for their 2010 exhibition of contemporary fiber art. This year the competition was steep. 1,600 works were entered by 703 artists from 30 countries. It was reportedly the largest and most diverse group of entries ever!
Only 87 pieces were chosen to be shown in the Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber Art, presented by the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh, Inc. An opening reception will be held on Friday evening, April 16 and the exhibit will run until August 22.
This juried exhibition of contemporary works of fiber art is recognized among fiber artists around the world as a benchmark exhibition that documents trends and innovations in the field. The goal of the exhibition is to include innovative work rooted in traditional fiber materials, structure, processes and history, as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between fiber and other creative disciplines.
