Fiber Flurry will be held this year at our gallery at 31 South Main Street in Perry, on April 27th. This year’s festival will include, for the first time, a juried arts exhibition and skein competition. This exhibit will showcase fiber art pieces from local artists curated around the council's 2024 theme of "Different." Art and handmade fiber art from the following three categories will be accepted: "Handmade Useful", "Handspun Skeins", and "For Art's Sake".
All accepted works will be included in "Different Fibers," an exhibit of the work that opens on April 12 at the council's headquarters in Perry, NY, and will be on view through April 27. This exhibition will be judged, with first, second, and third-place winners in each category to be announced at the Fiber Flurry Festival closing reception on April 27, 2024. Work using traditional techniques to create nontraditional, unexpected, or modern results, work that surprises, or work that uses traditional materials to generate nontraditional results will be given priority when judging.
Those who wish to submit work to be juried in the festival exhibition or skein competition should submit work through the call by March 21.
This show is curated and juried by juror Tami Fuller of East Aurora. Fuller is an award winning fiber artist, gallery owner, curator and exhibiting member of the Buffalo Society of Artists, Roycroft Emerging Artist in Fiber, a 2022 CRNY designee and a member of the Buffalo Weaver’s Guild and the Weaver’s Guild of Rochester. In addition to working as a fiber art educator as Blubird Studio, she is the daughter of a shepherdess raised on a working sheep farm with a knowledge of both fine art execution and technical application of fiber.
Saturday’s festival keynote address will be delivered by Shepherdess and Artist Tammy White. White is a nationally regarded artist who has contributed to Taproot Magazine, Modern Farmer, and What/Where Women Create, as well as collaborations with Vogue. Her production fiber farm, Wing & A Prayer Farm, is located in southwestern Vermont where she raises 100 sheep, goats, alpacas, and various other farm animals. Wing & A Prayer Farm is home to Vermont’s first pure blood Valais Blacknose Sheep and some of the first Valais Blacknose sheep in North America.
