Excellence in Fiber VII will be on view May 28 through Aug. 14, 2022. This is an annual juried exhibition from Fiber Art Now magazine as part of their publication and features fiber artworks from all over the world. The full exhibition, with works by 62 artists, appeared in print in their Spring 2022 issue. Selected artists are represented at the Schweinfurth.

The exhibit opens at 5 pm May 28 with a reception that is free and open to the public.

Artwork was selected in five categories:

Wall/Floor Works: Two-dimensional works, including quilts, tapestries, weavings, carpets, or works in any other fiber-related medium or technique that are intended for wall or floor display

Sculptural Works: Three-dimensional works in fiber

Vessel Forms/Basketry: Functional work and sculptural expressions of the vessel form

Installation Works: Three-dimensional work created as an environment

Wearables: Body adornments, including wearable art clothing, accessories and jewelry

This year’s exhibition was selected by jurors Petra Slinkard and Melinda Watt. Slinkard is director of curatorial affairs and The Nancy B. Putnam Curator of Fashion and Textiles at Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA. Watt is president of the Textile Society of America and chair and Christa C. Mayer Thurman Curator in the Department of Textiles at the Art Institute of Chicago.
