This is a nonjuried show but all art must be a form of fiber art and display a reasonable degree of skill and ability.

The exhibit will feature a Salon reception where exhibiting artists will be asked to share a brief introduction (2-3 minutes) to their work to the audience. Participation is voluntary but provides a better understanding of the complexities and processes of fiber art to the viewer.
