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!
