The Floyd Center for the Arts is pleased to open a call to wood and fiber artists throughout the  United States for a national juried exhibition, Fibers of Nature. As two different substances that  constantly appear in every-day life, both wood and fiber can be transformed from raw material into a multiplicity of functional pieces or fine art. The fibers of nature appear in many forms,  including all forms of wood, grapevine, sweetgrass, hair, cotton, silk, hemp, wool, linen, paper,  and more. The intent of this group exhibition is to highlight the beauty that is manifested in these  different forms, and to illustrate how artists are able to weave, sculpt, and imagine these fibers  into art.

This is a national, juried call and all accepted works will be exhibited in our main gallery space  from Saturday, February 11 to Saturday, April 1, 2023. All submitted works must be made from at least  50% natural fiber. Artists are responsible for shipping or delivering work to FCA and for any  return shipping. There will be no substitutions allowed.
