Focus on Fibre Art Association ‘Prairies’ Biennial Juried Competition & Show of Fibre Art opened at Enterprise Square Galleries, May 4, 2014, with a public opening reception, featuring award presentations and special guest speaker, renowned fibre artist Martha Cole, in a unique main floor open public art gallery space.
The show was filled with original artwork inspired by the ‘Prairies’ theme. Showcasing fibre artists from all parts of the globe, the exhibit was comprised of 84 juried entries. The colours and textures of the prairies are interpreted by the artists’ innovative use of a wide variety of fibres in the categories of textile design, needlework, weaving, wearables, knitting, rug hooking, doll making, mixed media and quilting.
