What is FOLK ART? What is FIBER ART? For the purposes of this show, here are some guidelines.
FOLK Art Is marked by such attributes as highly decorative design, bright bold colors, flattened perspective, and strong forms in simple arrangements. Unlike more sophisticated art, folk art tends to make use of natural substances like wood, straw, clay and so on. It may include basket weaving, doll-making, enameling, furniture-making, wood-turning, pottery, leatherwork, metalwork, knife-making, mosaic art, jewelry-making, toy-making, papier-mâché, etc. Painting may also be in the form of decorative embellishment on other objects, such as textiles, glass, or wood. Our definition of folk art for this show is broad and inclusive.
FIBER Art may include crochet, knitting, embroidery, felt-making, lace-making, macramé, carpet-weaving, tapestry and quilts, etc. Free-standing sculptures made of textiles are also acceptable for this show.
