Fiber art has become a widely celebrated art medium, one that is ever evolving and crosses the boundaries between fine art and craft. The scope of this medium is exemplified by the artworks displayed in, Fiberart International 2019 (FI2019), the 23rd exhibition of contemporary textile art sponsored by the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh, Inc. FI2019 featured artworks by 55 artists from the US and abroad. The exhibition was hosted by two respected Pittsburgh arts organizations: Contemporary Craft  and the Brew House Association. Opening receptions and awards ceremonies took place at both locations on Friday, May 31, 2019. The exhibition is free and open to the public, and was on view through August 24, 2019.

Fiberart International 2019 recorded the changing definition of textile art and gave the audience a chance to experience works by a diverse group of artists. Internationally respected artists and exhibition jurors, Sonya Clark and Jane Sauer reviewed more than 1,400 art works submitted by artists from 28 countries and across the United States. They refined the selection to 56 pieces bringing together artists from eight countries and 23 states.

On Saturday, June 1, the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh presented the Fiberart Forum. This day-long event featured a keynote address by Jane Sauer and informal discussion groups with exhibiting artists. The day began at Contemporary Craft and continued at the Brew House Association. Lunch and transportation between galleries were included.
