Cambridge Art Galleries invites submissions to Fibreworks 2022, a biennial juried exhibition of contemporary Canadian fibre art. Submissions of artwork in which fibre or textile is the principle element are welcomed from Canadian artists at all stages of their careers.
Now in its 19th year, Fibreworks was established in recognition of the regional textile industry that once flourished along the Grand River. The exhibition has also played a critical role in the development of Cambridge Art Galleries’ permanent collection of contemporary Canadian fibre art. Fibreworks 2022 will be juried by Yasmeen Nematt Alla (artist, writer, facilitator) and Hitoko Okada (fibre artist, curator).
Fibreworks 2022 is scheduled to be presented at Cambridge Art Galleries, Queen’s Square, from June 20 through September 11, 2022. Exhibition dates are subject to change in accordance with provincial regulations and public health guidelines. Artists presented in Fibreworks 2022 will receive artist fees in accordance with CARFAC fee schedules. Cambridge Art Galleries will coordinate and cover costs of shipping
