“Fantastic Fibers 2018,” Yesler Arts Center

Paducah, KY:  April 14 – June 9, 2018

The Yeiser Art Center is happy to announce that the call for entry for 2018’s Fantastic Fibers exhibition is now open! One of YAC’s most engaging, innovative & colorful international exhibits, Fantastic Fibers is an inspirational “must see” for fine artists, quilters and textile art enthusiasts across the globe. The show began in 1987 as a wearable art show but has evolved over the years to include a compelling mix of traditional and non-traditional works created from natural or synthetic fibers, and work that addresses the subject or medium of fiber. The FANTASTIC FIBERS 2018 exhibit is an American Quilter’s Society (AQS) sanctioned event and selected works will be seen by thousands of viewers. Paducah becomes a Mecca for quilters and quilt enthusiasts each April, as more than 30,000 visitors from across the globe attend AQS QuiltWeek. This year’s AQS QuiltWeek dates are April 18 – 21, 2018. This years juror, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, is a fiber artist whose experimental techniques and expressive interpretations have earned him an international reputation. Arturo is one of Kentucky’s most original, influential and significant artists. His work is in the collections of the New York City Museum of Modern Art’s Architecture and Design Collection, as well as galleries and private collections throughout the United States and the world

Deadline:  February 16, 2018
