FiberArts features contemporary artists who work with fabric, weaving, sewing, dyes, textiles, embroidery, crochet, knitting, needlework and soft sculpture in order to produce works that boast both fine craftsmanship and fine art. Although expression and decoration with textiles is ancient, it was only fairly recently accepted in the fine arts world. The fibers revolution of the 1960’s led to a huge number of artists, both men and women, exploring and experimenting in a medium which was once labeled “women’s work” or pushed aside from the arts scene as mere craft.
In the library you will find 122 Issues of FiberArts from 1979 to the Summer 2011 issue, which was sadly the last.
