Artist applications open for Fiber Art exhibition

PORT ANGELES — Applications are available for a Fiber Art Exhibition to be held in September in the Studio Bob gallery.

The gallery is located at 118½ E. Front St. in Port Angeles.

The non-juried exhibit, sponsored by Cabled Fiber & Yarn, will be held Sept. 9 through Oct. 1 and is an extension of the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival, held annually in Sequim beginning in October, as well as the Pacific Northwest Fiber Arts Exhibit held Sept. 29 through Oct. 1 at the Vern Burton Community Center.

“We define Fiber Art very loosely,” said MarySue French, one of the organizers of the event. “In previous years, we had a wide mix of artwork including spinning, felting, weaving, quilting, painted silk, knitting, crochet, costumes, fiber paintings, fiber sculptures, needle punched, braided and woven rugs, hats and even included driftwood art and jewelry.”

Artists may submit up to four pieces for a hanging fee of $4 per piece or four for $12.

The exhibition at Studio Bob’s gallery will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Sept. 9, from noon to 3 p.m. Sept. 10, and from noon to 3 p.m. Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, when artists will be giving live demonstrations.

Application forms are available at Cabled Fiber & Yarn, 125 W. First St., Port Angeles, and online at www.cabledfiber.com.

Art pieces may be brought to Cabled Fiber from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday through Sept. 5.
