For hanging artwork, each artist is responsible for their own hanging device. The hooks have a very narrow slot, so we recommend cord or wire attached. The pieces must be ready to hang at drop-off time.
If in any other format, the artist needs to provide a display method (i.e. floor standing mannequin)
3D pieces must be free standing and self supporting…the artist must provide and properly label the storage and transportation packaging, hard sided and generously fit the completed artwork.
$10.00 artist fee per entry. You will receive an invoice from TFAM upon completion of the 'Intent to Enter' form.
$100 minimum sale price if for sale. NFS always an option
*Note: a 20% commission is taken on any artwork sold during the show.
Labels and Packaging:
Ensure all artwork and packaging are clearly labelled with the artist name and artwork title.
Each piece should be in a collapsible storage container or storage bag large enough to accommodate the art; labelled as above. These will be stored at the MB Fibre Festival during the duration of the show and used to return the art work.
Artwork cards will be created to display beside each fibre art piece, so a 50-word maximum Artist Statement is required on the Entry form.
