CALLING ALL FIBER ARTISTS: SUBMISSIONS OPEN FOR THE
“STRUCTURES AND CONSTRUCTIONS IN FIBER” EXHIBIT AT NEW HOPE ARTS CENTER

The New Hope Arts Center is thrilled to announce its upcoming Juried Fiber Exhibition, curated by the esteemed Rita Gekht, titled "Structures and Constructions in Fiber." This exciting exhibition aims to challenge traditional fiber techniques with construction while exploring and highlighting structures as a visual subject matter. Fiber artists throughout the region are invited to submit their innovative works for consideration by May 13, 2024.


The exhibition, running from June 29 to August 18, 2024, offers a unique platform for artists to not only showcase their creativity in two and three dimensions, fiber installations, and mixed media, but also to challenge themselves and push the boundaries of their art. At least 50% of the materials used will be fiber-based. Structures and Construction in Fiber will be featured in the main gallery which resides in a recently renovated 200-year-old converted mill in New Hope, PA, a major international arts destination known for its rich cultural history.


"We're excited to see how artists interpret the theme of 'Structures and Constructions in Fiber, this is a fantastic opportunity for fiber artists to push their boundaries and present their unique perspectives on this intriguing subject." - said Rita Gekht, the exhibition's curator.


Interested artists can submit their entries by May 13th, 2024. Each application requires a non-refundable fee of $40, or $30 for NH Arts Members, payable online via PayPal or by check made out to "New Hope Arts." Artists may submit up to three (3) pieces for consideration, accompanied by an entry form, JPEG images, resume, and artist statement. Submissions should be emailed to newhopeartsorg@gmail.com or by mail to 2 Stockton Ave, New Hope, PA 18938 (with images emailed separately).


The curator, Rita Gekht, will serve as the juror and review all submissions in a blind jury process. Works will be judged based on artistic excellence and aesthetic vision, and selected artists will be notified by email. 


The "Structures and Constructions in Fiber" exhibition is made possible partly by funding from Visit Bucks County's Tourism Grant Program and support from individual sponsors Roger Thomas, Ricki Fisher, and Larry Keller.
