Juror: Rebecca Stevens, former Consulting Curator at the Textile Museum 

On View June 1 – July 29, 2018
Reception: Juror Talk and Awards Presentation: Saturday June 9, 6pm – 8pm

Workhouse Arts Center is pleased to announce the opening of Fiber National, a juried exhibition showcasing the best in contemporary fiber art from around the country. The 2nd biennial of the exhibition will highlight exciting, innovative artwork utilizing both traditional and non-traditional techniques. This year’s Juror is Rebecca A. T. Stevens, formerly the Consulting Curator, Contemporary Textiles at the Textile Museum (now George Washington University Museum – The Textile Museum) in Washington, D.C. The exhibition will be on view in the McGuireWoods Gallery from June 1 – July 29, 2018.

Juror Statement
The use of fiber as an art medium has waxed and waned in the past millennium. The recognition of fiber by the art world to evoke powerful emotions and concerns has accelerated in the last decade as critics discuss and curators organize exhibitions highlighting fiber in sculpture, installations and wall art. Critic Leslie Camhi opined in the New York Times, “The renewed embrace of fiber might have something to do with our increasingly virtual world, scrubbed freer everyday of human contact and face-to-face interactions. Textiles, in contrast, are earthy and inherently tactile.” The artists in this exhibition have found the tactile nature of fiber to be the perfect vehicle to give voice to their ideas and to relate those ideas to real people and the world around them.
