CALL FOR FIBER ART AND TEXTILES

Call for Art:
NH Artists who use fiber in their work

Exhibition dates:
July 24 – September 4, 2021

Location:
Twiggs Gallery, Boscawen, NH

Submission deadline:
Saturday May 1, 2021

The Surface Design Association’s (SDA) New Hampshire Group invites NH fiber artists to enter Tension: Process in the Making featuring fiber art and textiles by New Hampshire artists. The artists will explore tension – the act of expanding or widening. In a world that has become overstimulated and intense, the process of making slows us down to find balance and create broad narratives within the visual aesthetics of fiber art.

NEW EXHIBIT: OPENING RECEPTION- SATURDAY, APRIL 24 FROM 1-3 PM

RETABLOS RECONSIDERED
April 24- June 6

Opening Reception:
Saturday, April 24 from 1-3 pm

Retablos are traditional devotional paintings that developed in Spain in the Catholic Church around the 12th century. The traditional paintings are devotional holy images that relate to a miraculous event. 

In this exhibit, the artists have reconsidered this honorific art form to reveal themes that personally, socially even politically affect their lives. Some reflect traditional religious themes within a contemporary context. Others are non-religious but are created to draw awareness to broad issues in our times and some reveal deeply personal stories.

Kickstart!

Building on the success of “Busting Out: Powerful Women”, WCA/NH and Twiggs Gallery team together on an exhibition that features shoes – art created from shoes, or that shows shoes as the main focus of the artwork – an immediate tribute to the resiliency of women and the many ways that they have found to kickstart or re-boot their lives since the onset of the corona pandemic or through major life events – or by choice, by design, or simply because they could.
