2018 North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival calls for artists

SEQUIM — The 13th-annual North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival is calling for artists to enter “Transformative Style – Originality, Revolution & Repute,” a juried fiber arts exhibition.

The entry deadline is 9 p.m. Sept. 8.

Seasoned or newer creations are welcome, organizers said. The festival is open to all fiber arts media, not just wearable art. All formats of fiber art will be considered, including wall-hung, free-standing or pedestal mounted. Entries must be original and must not be copied, derivatives or based on other copyrighted or published work. All skill levels are welcome.

The full prospectus is at www.FiberArtsFestival.org; those interested can enter online at uniqueasyou.submittable.com/submit.

A maximum of three art entries per artist can be entered; there is $15 entry fee per artist.

The North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival celebrates its 13th year, held annually the first weekend in October in Sequim as well as at various events and locations throughout autumn.

The interactive fiber arts event looks to connect the community with activities such as museum exhibitions, workshops, educational demonstrations of fiber processes, hands-on projects for children and adults, a Fiber Arts Market of local artists’ work and fiber supplies, and information about local fiber activities, groups, businesses and instructional resources.

The exhibit will be Oct. 5-Nov. 24 at Sequim Museum & Arts, 175 W. Cedar St., with the opening reception of the festival set for Friday, Oct. 5, during the First Friday Art Walk Sequim.

Volunteers make the event possible, organizers say, including several local fiber arts groups, artists, fiber-friendly businesses and educational organizations.
