    CALL TO ARTISTS!

    Registration is available online, July 8 - September 23, for the Hawaiʻi Handweavers' Hui 2021 Biennial Juried Exhibition - INSPIRATIONS.

    Please read Prospectus before registering.

    PROSPECTUS


    The Hawaiʻi Handweavers’ Hui is excited to partner with the Glass Fusion Collective in the joint exhibit “Inspirations”. Though two very different mediums, both rely on color as one of the main components. The venue of the Downtown Art Center is an inspiration in itself as the space has windows along one side allowing for natural light to interact with the pieces.

    Juror Suzi Ballenger

    Suzi Ballenger completed her MFA at University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and has worked in New England as a weaver and teaching artist since 1996. She has invented and trademarked specialized tools for weaving. Ballenger’s ongoing research in hand papermaking is informed by her love of thread and fiber and was supported by workshops at the Honolulu Museum of Art, Hawaii and an internship at Dieu Donné Paper Studio in Brooklyn, New York. Ballenger currently serves as President of the Board of Directors of the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc., an organization of more than 3,500 members.


    Juror's Statement

    Inspiration is formally defined by various dictionaries*as: An unconscious burst of creativity; Growth of energy or spiritual power; An ability to form mental images of things that are not physically present or have never been conceived of; The “in-breath”. (*Merriam-Webster Dictionary, Oxford Languages Dictionary, Dictionary.com, Medical-dictionary.com)

    The tactile language of fiber is an exceptional metaphor for responses to inspiration. Presenting a subtle concept in physical form requires a creative understanding from the artist that also encourages the viewer to look deeply at what excites them personally. This sense of freedom can be translated as color, material, pattern, structure, simplicity, or extraordinary/out-of-the-box technique. The most moving and visually engaging textile/fiber art presents a strong narrative seamlessly connected with technique. It is hoped that these works will catch your in-breath, spur ideas and stimulate further responses.
