Fiberart International 2022 is the 24th in a series of juried exhibitions held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania open to textile artists worldwide. It seeks to exhibit the best of contemporary art and invites submissions that reflect a wide range of works related to the fiber medium. The exhibition is recognized around the world as a benchmark that documents trends and innovations in the field. The goal of the exhibition is to include innovative work rooted in traditional fiber materials, structure, processes and history, as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between fiber and other creative disciplines.
Fiberart International is produced by FIBERARTS GUILD OF PITTSBURGH, INC., a non-profit, member supported organization that promotes the appreciation of fiber art and fosters its creative development and continuance. Since 1967, the Fiberarts Guild has sponsored juried exhibitions that bring innovative contemporary works of art in fiber from around the world to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Fiberart International 2022 will feature works by established and emerging artists and will be open to the public from June 3rd to August 20, 2022 at the Brew House Association and Contemporary Craft. The Fiberarts Guild is pleased to sponsor this 24th exhibition.

July 28, 2022 Thursday FI 22 Artist Robin Bernstein Meet and Greet/Demonstration at Brew House, followed by lecture.
Meet and Greet at the Brew House Gallery, followed by refreshments followed by 6:00 pm Presentation by Robin Bernstein “Beauty and Terror” with Introduction by Marcel Walker of the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh.
FI2022 Artist Robin Bernstein, trained as a painter, has worked with string and wax as her primary medium for the past 15 years. Her work focuses on both historical and urgent contemporary content and is created by obsessively cutting tiny pieces of colored string and then pressing them into wax. Bernstein believes that art has the power to shift human behavior and therefore chooses subject matter, materials, and processes that support this idea. Bernstein’s subject matter combined with her artistic technique is her way of shouting from the rooftops that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
July 30, 2022 Saturday, FI 22 Artist Robin Bernstein Workshop at Contemporary Craft.
Tuition: $125+ $10 materials fee. Please pre-register.
August 20, 2022 Saturday, FI 22 Artists Camilla Pearce and Stefanie Zito presentation, last day of the Exhibition
