11th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition Call for Submissions
African American fiber artists from across the nation are invited to participate in the 11th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition: Move on Up and Reach the Higher Ground, a component of the 2017 North Charleston Arts Fest. The theme for this year’s exhibit is inspired by the music of the 1970s that sought to unify and lift the spirit of our nation, specifically songs such as Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground and Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield. The challenge for this special exhibit is for artists to create a fiber work, such as an art quilt, doll, wearable art piece, etc., that explores the ideas of creating a better world, journeying toward self-awareness, and ascending to a position of loving acceptance of all citizens. The application will be available November 1 and is due March 1. Fee: $30.
