“Contemporary Fiber in Florida 2020” is a 90-page color book about the juried exhibition at Florida CraftArt from March 13-August 22, 2020. It showcases innovative approaches to traditional fiber techniques, including weaving, surface design, wearable art, basketry, beading, and textile dyeing. It features 40 artists from around the state of Florida, from Tallahassee in the north to Sunrise in the south. The artists featured in “Contemporary Fiber in Florida” are breathing a new life into these age-old techniques. Fiber and textile traditions are universal and cross-cultural, and they are and always have been an integral element to our way of life. These labor-intensive, physical pieces cross boundaries and join the worlds of conceptuality, spirituality, and craft by highlighting the element of the handmade. This exhibition is an exploration into a medium that is often misunderstood and is a beautiful representation of how vibrant the world of fiber is for artists in Florida.
