A day of inspiration and conversation with the artists of Fiberart International
FIBERART FORUM 2022
Saturday June 4th and Sunday June 5th, 2022
A related conference open to the public. In 2022 the Fiberart Forum was extend to two days and took place in person and online. Participants had the option of attending either one or both.
The In-Person Forum on June 4, 2022 included presentations by attending artists, keynote lecture, lunch and transportation between exhibition venues.
The Online Forum included the live broadcast of the keynote lecture on Saturday June 4, 2022 and the Online artists’ presentations on Sunday June 5, 2022.
Saturday, June 4, 2022- In Person
The in-person session of the Forum featured a lecture and gallery presentations by exhibiting artists. It was a full day event from 9:00am until 3:30pm. The format was informal, designed to encourage free-flowing dialogue between FI2022 attending artists and Forum attendees. We asked each participating artist to be available adjacent to their work to speak with Forum attendees and answer questions. We began the morning at the Brew House Association, then a break for lunch. During our lunch hour, Jessica Hemmings, one of our distinguished jurors, was our keynote speaker. Then the entire group proceeded via bus to Contemporary Craft for the remainder of the afternoon.
Sunday, June 5, 2022 – Online
For the online session we gave an opportunity to those artists who did not attend in person to make their presentations at a Fiberart Forum Online. The format was similar to the in-person Forum. Artists were grouped in several sessions to speak about their work and answer questions for about 10 minutes.
