Event Description

Call for Fiber Artists, accepting submissions May 5th - July 31st, 2018.
Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is hosting Techniques & Traditions fiber show Sept 6 - Sept 27
If you work in fiber or use a fiber technique you are welcome to appy.

Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is a non-profit community arts center housed in a grand 1931-era post office in vibrant downtown Monroe, Ga. Monroe is a town built on the history of its Cotton Mill. Many small fiber industry towns like Monroe receded with manufacturing globalization. Monroe-Walton Center for the Arts is committed to be a venue where traditional fiber techniques can remain present. We have a gallery, gift shop, classrooms, sculpture garden and a pottery studio. In addition to gallery shows, we host classes, creative workshops and events.

September will be geared toward Fiber Arts. We will have pop-up markets running concurrently with the well-attended Monroe Farmers Market, featuring Guild Members fiber goods in the Gift Shop as well as fiber classes. Anyone interested in these events, please contact us for more information.

Techniques and Traditions will be juried by Atlanta based fiber artist Maria Ava Totina Ramos and Robin Sherriffs. The show Judge will be announced shortly. Any artist is invited to submit entries that utilize a fiber (including paper) and fiber construction technique.

Prizes will be awarded on excellence of technique used to convey the artists’ idea.
