"New Directions in Fiber Art" Exhibition
From February 9 through June 16, Montclair Art Museum's newest exhibition, New Directions in Fiber Art, will be on display. The New Jersey Arts Annual exhibition highlights New Jersey’s visual artists sponsored by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. This juried show consist of works created in the array of traditional and contemporary fibrous materials and methods, all of which have been completed since 2015.
As humanity relies increasingly upon technology, there is a growing appreciation of the personal, sensuous delivery of mood and content through the familiar components of fiber. Putting forth the discoveries of their world and times, these artists engage the expressive potential of ancient methods with contemporary voices.
