"A Life in Fiber"

Sutton's lecture will focus on her 40 year love of the use of fibrous materials to create a poetic language that speaks to the archetypal ideas of counting, longing, patience, journeying, loss, repairing, crossing, and empathy in a visually palpable way. The development of work, along with the work of other artists, both established and recent students, will be in included to demonstrate these ideas.

Fiber Hawaii 2014 Prospectus (PDF download)

This exhibit will feature works “in, of or about” fiber art. Entrants may use any media as long as it incorporates a fiber or textile technique or sensibility. Woven glass, clay or wire, handmade paper, traditional weaving, batik, and fabric painting are some possible techniques that would be eligible. Photography, traditional paintings or prints would generally not be acceptable.

This year we are also challenging entrants to be inspired by a work of art in the Honolulu Museum of Art collection. This “Inspired” challenge is an optional theme. Pick a textile, sculpture, painting or any other work that inspires you and create a piece “in, of or about fiber” based on that inspirational piece.
