The Jurors

The Fiber Art Network engaged two jurors of note, Caroline Kipp, Curator of Contemporary Art, The Textile Museum, George Washington University, and Lisa L. Kriner, President of the Textile Society of America and Professor of Art at Berea College. They have selected 52 outstanding works of art from over 1100 entries.

It was a joy and an honor to serve as a juror for Excellence in Fibers, and see so many powerful examples of brilliance within the field. The works I was particularly enamored with and were most successful in my view, began with a clear concept that was seamlessly integrated with technique and produced a strong visual message. Thank you to everyone who submitted for creating such exceptional fiber-based artworks, and sharing your vision with the world. Caroline Kipp, EIFVI Juror

 

 

 

It was a joy to serve as a juror for the Excellence In Fibers exhibition and selecting the final art was a true challenge.  As President of Textile Society of America, it was wonderful to see all of the intellectually and visually engaging art being made in the textile tradition and medium.  As a teacher, it was an inspiration to see the exciting art world my students are moving into. -Lisa Kriner, EIFIV Juror
