Fiber artist Amy Caterina has a call for artist for her upcoming Forest, For the Trees exhibit slated for November this year. Anyone is invited to contribute a piece which will form part of a cohesive whole that will remain intact. More information on the exhibit and how to contribute are on Amy’s blog, Free Range Knitting or the Forest Facebook page.
This exhibition hopes to address the wonders and perils of the forest by creating an environment which is at once unique and fantastic, dangerous and bizarre, and by acknowledging that one day the built environment may be all that’s left us.
We are looking for all types of yarn art relating to our forest, and encourage both novice and expert crafters with open arms. Who knows what lurks within the deepest, darkest parts of the forest; trees, groundcover, animals, monsters, aliens, maybe a taco plants or two. We’d love to see works which are funny, socially conscience, use unusual materials and/or push the knit/crochet envelope. Recycled knit and fiber materials are encouraged.
