Call for Art: FIBER. FABRIC, AND TEXTILE SHOW AT PLASTIC CLUB

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, March 24, 2018

In a nod to Philadelphia’s history as a turn-of-the-century textile industry center, the Plastic Club is inviting fabric artists to submit fiber art for an April show entitled “Fiber, Fabric, and Textiles.” The show is open to works “that are primarily made of fiber, fabric, textiles, and/or related materials.”

Entry is open to the public and invites works made primarily of fiber, fabric, textiles, and/or related materials such as weaving, crochet, lace, quilts, cloth sculpture, fashion, and more. Original artworks only that is, no works made from patterns or designs not created by the artist. The show’s prospectus detailing entry guidelines can be downloaded from the Plastic Club’s website at www.plasticclub.org.

The Plastic Club, located on historic Camac Street, was founded in 1897 to support art and artists. Back in 1897, “Plastic” meant in-progress or changeable. At that time, according to the book “Workshop of the World,” Philadelphia had roughly seven hundred separate textile companies, employing some sixty thousand people.
