This exhibit includes all forms of fiber art: functional, wearable, and fine art, original in concept and design, and must not have been created in a class/workshop, or from a kit, or been in a previous juried exhibit at Bower Center.

This years exhibition will be juried and judged by Paula Golden. (Pictured on the right)
Paula's Statement:

Using fiber as a creative means to communicate is intrinsic to my very being. It links me to the continuum of men and women who have stitched their lives in fiber to provide warmth and nourishment for the body and soul. My hands pull weeds, connect community and stitch together thoughts and ideas to create art.

Paula's Bio:
Paula Golden relishes sharing the history, techniques and art of quilting with students of all ages. Her forty-year passion for all aspects of quilting encourages students to explore their own creativity in a positive, nurturing environment. Paula has developed a well-stocked toolbox of tricks and techniques to solve most design concerns. She teaches nationally and internationally, has had patterns and quilts in a variety of publications and quilts in private and public collections.
