The Fantastic Fibers 2015 international juried exhibition is about to open! All selected work will be on display at the Yeiser Art Center April 1-June 6, 2015. The Fantastic Fibers exhibit is an AQS QuiltWeek sanctioned event.
Traditionally, Yeiser Art Center receives nearly 800 entries from 128 artists from 12 countries. As 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.
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. 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.
Yeiser Art Center is a non-profit visual arts organization celebrating more than fifty years of serving the community with exhibitions and education throughout the Tri-State Region. It is situated near Paducah’s riverfront at 200 Broadway in the historic 1905 Market House-just one block from The National Quilt Museum.
