16th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition – Sister Girl Friends (and Brothers, too)
This annual juried exhibition features works in fiber created by African American artists from throughout the United States. Inspired by the Isadora James quote, “A sister friend is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning a life,” this year’s theme looks to celebrate friendships between sisters (and brothers, too), both familial and those chosen along the way. The challenge for the16th annual exhibit was for artists to create a fiber art piece that explores the special bond between sister girlfriends and the strength that can be drawn from these cherished relationships. Sister girlfriends support, defend, encourage, trust, and advocate for one another. They show up in every way. Curated by award-winning and nationally exhibiting textile artist, Torreah “Cookie” Washington, this unique opportunity offers African American fiber artists a showcase to exhibit their original and innovative designs executed in a variety of traditional and non-traditional fiber techniques.
