Fibre Content 2014
The 2014 Exhibition Organizing Committee sending this post as a REMINDER that your entry is important to the success of the second bi-annual Fibre Content Exhibition, to be held at the

Burlington Art Centre, September 9-16, 2014!

 Please note our Sunday June 1, 2014 Call to Entry Deadline
The Exhibition promises to draw a large number of visitors as it moves to a new timeline and is on exhibit at the beautiful Burlington Art Centre for a FULL WEEK including a fall weekend. This is a perfect time for travel while the weather is still beautiful, and the arts enthusiasts are keen to be out and about visiting the best of the best exhibitions. Having a large and exceptional entry from our member groups will ensure that this year's Show offers a wide and diverse display of techniques and interests from our artist entrants.
Juried by Emma Quin, Executive Director of the Ontario Crafts Council, Virginia Eichhorn, Director and Chief Curator of the Tom Thomson Art Gallery, and Sandra Dupret, Dean/Principal of the Fleming College Haliburton Campus, the 2014 show will seek to exhibit the best of contemporary Canadian fibre art — a wide range of works in fibre and mixed media such as fabric, paper, yarn, thread and various mixed materials.

The entries are open to all members of SAQA Central Canada and the participating guilds, as well as non-members who, if accepted, will be willing to join SAQA as artist members.

We welcome you to visit the SAQA website at for membership information.
