Feminist Fiber Art Exhibition

Iris Nectar Studio

Entry Deadline: Dec. 31

28 Cutter Avenue
Somerville, MA 02144


This is a pop-up art exhibit (presented by Iris Nectar Studio) featuring female artists and focusing on fiber art. It is taking the form of an art crawl through Boston with an opening of August 14.

Any artist that identifies as a woman is welcome to apply; you do not need to be based in Boston or exclusively a fiber artist. Your work does not need to explicitly have a feminist agenda either; we will consider any fiber artwork submitted, regardless of content. If you are not a local artist, you will be required to cover the cost of shipping your artwork to and from the curators in Boston.

We are also accepting submissions from male artists for a zine that we will showcase at the exhibit, “Men Can Make Fiber Art Too.” The artwork we accept from these submissions will not be physically present at the show, but the artist will receive a two-page spread in the zine dedicated to their work and will be mentioned in articles and blog posts.

You may submit up to five works of art for consideration. Each artwork must address the medium of fiber- however you choose to interpret that theme is up to you. You are required to email .jpg images of your artwork along with an image list indicating submission number, title, size, process, and year to [email protected].

If you would like your application to be considered, you must also submit the required $10 application fee. Immediately after you submit the application form you will be prompted with a link to pay the fee via PayPal. Please include “Fiber Art Exhibit Fee” in the memo. If we do not receive your fee along with your application, your submission will not be considered.
