~The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
Have you experienced the phenomenon of finding something valuable that was not sought for? A fortunate discovery that happens by accident? A series of events which are not individually favourable, but occurring together, produce a wonderful outcome? If so, then you have had an encounter with serendipity! Not quite a coincidence and a little different than luck, these happy accidents can stir up all kinds of emotions, memories and opportunities - the perfect inspiration for creating art.
Eligibility: This Art Show is open to all Manitobans, all members of TFAM and all exhibitors/vendors of the Manitoba Fibre Festival 2022.

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.
