UIW Department of Art Hosts 43rd Annual FASA Fiber Art Exhibit

Fiber Artists of San Antonio (FASA) has partnered with the UIW Department of Art to host the FASA 43rd Juried Fiber Art Exhibit in the Semmes Gallery of the Kelso Art Center. An opening reception will be held from 6 – 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 13, in the Kelso Art Center.

Fiber artwork typically consists of artwork constructed with linear, pliable elements as a major material. Fiber art may be constructed by methods traditionally associated with textile fibers such as stitching, wearing and dyeing.

Local artists submitted fiber art pieces to FASA to be showcased in the upcoming exhibition at UIW. Doshi, a costume designer from Encinitas, CA, juried the entries to pick the top three selections to be featured. The winners are:

  • First Place: Janis Hooker, Boro Quilt
  • Second Place: Rebecca Segura, Abby
  • Third Place: Kim Paxon, Secret Life of Things

The FASA 43rd Annual Juried Fiber Art Exhibit will run through Friday, Nov. 17, in the Semmes Gallery of the Kelso Art Center. For more info on the gallery hours of operation, visit this link. For more info on FASA, follow this link.
