What is FOLK ART? What is FIBER ART?

For the purposes of this show, here are some guidelines.

FOLK Art Is marked by such attributes as highly decorative design,

bright bold colors, flattened perspective, and strong forms in simple

arrangements. Unlike more sophisticated art, folk art tends to make

use of natural substances like wood, straw, clay and so on. It may

include basket weaving, doll-making, enameling, furniture-making,

wood-turning, pottery, leatherwork, metalwork, knife-making, mosaic

art, jewelry-making, toy-making, papier-mache, etc. Painting may also

be in the form of decorative embellishment on other objects, such as

textiles, glass, or wood. Our definition of folk art for this show is

broad and inclusive.

FIBER Art may include crochet, knitting, embroidery, felt-making,

lace-making, macrame, carpet-weaving, tapestry and quilts, etc.

Free-standing sculptures made of textiles are also acceptable for this
