February & March 2021 brings our 5th annual Fiber Arts & Jewelry Exhibit. This annual exhibit creates a platform for an underrepresented branch of the visual arts while showcasing the breadth of talent within our local community of fiber and jewelry artists.

Art Center East invites you to enter your work in the 5th Annual Fiber Arts & Jewelry Exhibit. 

Theme: Comfort

By that we mean a wide variety of things. Have you found comfort in process (the knitting that assuages your anxiety, the quilting that helps you express your inner feelings in color and shape), in the products you make (a blanket to wrap your child in, face masks to share with family and friends, a necklace to dress up your yoga pants and sweatshirt), or a little bit of both?

Create a fiber or jewelry piece that explores one or both sides of this coin - process & product - while visually expressing whatever the word "comfort" means to you (chunky yarn, soft textures, calming color combos or focal points, reassurance, support, etc). Let's create comfort for each other. We need it!
