Having fun with fiber

-A A +A

Call for entries attracts a number of unconventional art pieces

By Jennifer Garcia

What comes to mind when you think about fiber arts? Quilts? Weavings? Clothing? How about shoelaces, earrings and decorative boxes? If not, get ready for a show that will change the way you think about fiber arts, because these are just a few items that will be on display beginning Oct. 1 at the Fuller Lodge Art Center.
Fall Fiber & Fashion celebrates “fiber with a special emphasis on wearable art,” according to the FLAC exhibit schedule. Those entering their art are encouraged to play with form and function in fiber or design, as well as create and display their fashions.
“Don’t forget to accessorize — jewelry, scarves, handbags, hats — use your imagination! Looking for a creative use of all media,” said the call for entries on the FLAC Web site.
“The fibers come out in the fall as people get their heavier clothes on,” FLAC Communications Coordinator Nancy Coombs said.
Village Arts Co-owner Ken Nebel said he’s been preparing for this show by making paper mache mannequins on which some of the artists’ work will be displayed. He also said he put out a call for artists “everywhere.”
“We just wait to see what shows up,” Coombs said.
Nebel said they didn’t know what to expect of the call for entries.
