    CALL TO ARTISTS!

    The prospectus is now available for our 2019 Biennial Juried Exhibition, THREADS ALLURE: An Interactive Relationship Between Woven Fibers and Viewers.

    PROSPECTUS

    ONLINE ENTRY FORM Please complete one form per entry by November 8, 2019.


    In the realm of weaving, the fusion of threads creates attractive constructs from fiber selections, techniques, patterns, and color combinations. In this exhibition you will create a display of complex and beautiful seductions. The appeal will vary for each viewer as there are different makers.

    The unprecedented and artful exhibit goes beyond the usual exposition boundaries. Viewers will be able to touch the creation itself, or a sample of it, and will encounter not only a visual sentiment but a unique and educational tactile experience.

    Jurors Carol Doran-Khewhok and Sanit Khewhok

    We are honored to be selected as jurors for Threads Allure. We look forward to selecting works for the exhibition that will be visually strong and will highlight the diversity of techniques employed by Handweavers' Hui artists. As life long lovers of the textile arts we hope the exhibition will be visually striking, a testament to the abilities of Hui members and a celebration of old and new textile traditions.

    Juror Sara Oka

    Recently retired Curator of Textiles for the Honolulu Museum of Art, Sara Oka has curated numerous textile exhibitions from the collection, and coordinated traveling exhibitions and loans, including the impressive display of skirt textiles, Gather Around, on view at HoMA through February 2, 2020.

    Statement

    Textiles have an ability to connect with so many audiences and viewers because of the familiarity textiles provide. From body adornment to home embellishments, from ceremonial, religious and festival applications, fibers take center stage in so many aspects of our lives.This challenge to frame, both figuratively and literally, provides a new context and opportunity to showcase how fibers are presented. How will this affect how we perceive these works? Will it alter the artistic integrity, techniques, narratives, craftsmanship, or will it accentuate boundaries - physically, politically, culturally, emotionally? Looking forward to the creativity this will provide, both for the artist and the community as well.

    Jennifer Moore holds an MFA in Fibers and specializes in exploring mathematical patterns and musical structures in doubleweave wall hangings. She has exhibited throughout the world, receiving numerous awards for her work, and has been featured in many weaving publications. Jennifer lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico and travels extensively to teach workshops in doubleweave, color and geometric design. Jennifer was invited to teach doubleweave to indigenous Quechua weavers in Peru in 2013, where they are once again excelling in this technique which had been discontinued after the Spanish conquest. She is the author of The Weaver’s Studio: Doubleweave, several doubleweave videos and online courses, and numerous articles.

    Double Rainbow: 2 Layers, 4 or 8 Shafts, 6 Colors – Endless Possibilities

    3 day workshop

    Jan. 9, 2020 - Loom set up day

    Jan. 10-12, 2020, 9 am-4 pm each day

    This is perhaps the ultimate color sampler! You will begin by winding a warp and setting up your loom according to Jennifer's system for working with multiple colors in a rotational sequence and bringing it to the workshop. A basic two-layered structure will enable us to mix and match our colors, creating an amazing array of color mixtures. As you weave and your warp colors move past each other you will experience a visual feast of iridescence and moire patterns. We will also experiment with single-layered structures such as warp rep and warp-faced twills and the effects that they create on this versatile warp. This sampler will provide a remarkable education in color theory and how optical mixtures work in weaving, as well as a great source of inspiration for future weaving projects.

    Join us for a free public lecture by textile artist Jennifer Moore.

    Since ancient times, human beings have observed the world around them and found recurring patterns in nature. The Golden Proportion, the Fibonacci Series, symmetry movements, tessellations and fractals are some of the mathematical ideas that have found their way into art and architecture for thousands of years. In this slide show we will see examples of how these ideas have been used throughout history, and particularly in contemporary fiber art.

    2 1/2  day workshop

    Jan. 14-15, 2020, 9 am-4 pm each day

    Jan. 16, 2020, 9 am-12:00 pm

    Have you ever wanted to work with these wonderful tools for visual design, but been scared off by a lack of drawing or math skills? This workshop is for you! We will take a visual and intuitive approach to working with symmetry movements, tiling patterns and harmonious proportions including the Fibonacci series. Through a series of fun exercises using drawing, coloring, rubber stamps and paper cutouts you will create a toolbox of skills to use in creating your own harmonious designs and go home with a new way of looking at the world. There is no weaving in this workshop.
