CALL FOR ENTRIES
Submission Deadline: February 21, 2015
The Yeiser Art Center is now accepting entries for the FANTASTIC FIBERS 2015 international juried exhibition.
One of Yeiser Art Center's most engaging, innovative & colorful international exhibits, Fantastic Fibers is an inspirational "must see" for quilters and textile art enthusiasts across the globe.
In November 2013, Paducah was bestowed the honor of being designated a member of the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Creative Cities Network in the area of Crafts & Folk Art. Paducah's international connections in the area of quilting and fiber arts and Yeiser's long standing commitment to Fantastic Fibers attributed to this esteemed title. We thank all our participants over the years, both home and abroad, for helping make Paducah "distinctively creative."
Jurors: The 2015 Fantastic Fibers jurors are Marcia Young, Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of Fiber Art Now magazine, and Laverne Zabielski, renowned Kentucky fiber artist, creator of Truly Wearable art and noted author.
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.
