Open Call to Artists
Fibers of Nature
February 11 - April 1, 2023
Hayloft Gallery, Floyd Center for the Arts
The Floyd Center for the Arts is pleased to open a call to wood and fiber artists throughout the United States for a national juried exhibition, Fibers of Nature. As two different substances that constantly appear in every-day life, both wood and fiber can be transformed from raw material into a multiplicity of functional pieces or fine art. The fibers of nature appear in many forms, including all forms of wood, grapevine, sweetgrass, hair, cotton, silk, hemp, wool, linen, paper, and more. The intent of this group exhibition is to highlight the beauty that is manifested in these different forms, and to illustrate how artists are able to weave, sculpt, and imagine these fibers into art.
This is a national, juried call and all accepted works will be exhibited in our main gallery space from Saturday, February 11 to Saturday, April 1, 2023. All submitted works must be made from at least 50% natural fiber. Artists are responsible for shipping or delivering work to FCA and for any return shipping. There will be no substitutions allowed. First, second, and third place awards will be granted, as well as a “People’s Choice” award. To participate in this exhibition a non refundable application fee of $25 for FCA members and $30 for non-members is required. To become a member of The Floyd Center for the Arts, visit our website www.floydartcenter.org and pay for your membership before submitting your application. You may also obtain membership by phone at (540)745-2784. Artists may apply beginning August 29, 2022 with a deadline to apply by January 2, 2023. Any questions may be submitted via email to
firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone.
Visit www.callforentry.org to submit your images or visit our website to do so. A total of FIVE (5) works of art may be submitted per artist. Submitted digital images should represent the skill level and unique voice of each artist’s work. All submitted works must available to be shown at this exhibition; however not all submissions may be accepted into the exhibition. Video entries cannot be accepted. Review and acceptance of the artist field will be performed by FCA’s Gallery Committee. Artists will be notified of acceptance by January 9, 2023.
