February & March 2022 brings our Sixth Annual Fiber Arts & Jewelry Exhibit. This annual exhibit creates a platform for the underrepresented branch of visual arts and to showcase local fiber and jewelry artists.

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

Theme

The 2022 exhibit theme is "Fiber Focused on Color”.  Artists are encouraged to relate their submission to The 2022 Spring & Summer New York Fashion Week Color Palette. Each of the ten (10) beautiful Pantone colors has a name and brief description. 

Create a fiber or jewelry piece that focuses on one color (or all 10!) or its meaning!

“According to Pantone Color Institute experts, colors for Spring/Summer 2022 New York reflect our aspiration for balance as we move through a changing landscape. Colors that evince our need for comfort, clarity, and security satisfy our urge to stay with the familiar. At the same time, free-spirited optimism, and a feeling of new liberation, are unleashed in dynamic, stand-out shades, quenching our desire for spontaneity, uplift, and joy.” [excerpt from pantone.com]
