Global Warming will travel with FIBRE CONTENT all across Ontario for next two years... thanks to the Jury and teams of organizers for this amazing Fibre Art Exhibition opportunity...

Global Warming, Bethany Garner, Kingston, ON 2018

Inspired by a photo taken by Astronaut Mark Kelly, from the International Space Station as it passed over the Hudson’s Bay in 2016.  Artist’s dyed/spun rovings, hand-stitched on her spun and woven wool  background. Couching threads hand dyed by Dianne Gibson.

The 2018 Fibre Content Exibition was the Fourth Biennial Juried Exhibition of Contemporary Fibre Art. It showcased 90 works by 60 artists from across Ontario, in fabric, paper, yarn, thread and mixed media materials. The goal, as always, was to raise the profile, awareness and acceptance of Fibre Art as a true art form.

The Premiere was, again, at the Art Gallery of Burlington, from September 6th to September 16th, 2018. A selection of 40 pieces forms a smaller version of the Exhibition which will travel to seven Northern Ontario locations into 2020!
