The Lake Erie Fiberarts Guild is a group of artists doing original work in fiber. This includes material constructed from animal, vegetable or mineral origin that can be natural or synthetic.
This vibrant and exciting group, which formed in 1998, consists of artists from New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. They create original surface design and fiber works of art that entail a variety of techniques and materials that are both two and three dimensional. These include mixed fiber, needlework, paper/felting, quilts, sculpture/installation, surface design, wearable art and weaving.
The Lake Erie Fiberarts Guild provides an opportunity for artists working in any fiber-related art form to exchange philosophies, to share information about sources and resources, and to seek venues to exhibit their work. The Guild's goal is to connect and inform the viewing audience about the unique and contemporary qualities of fiber art.
Individual members have exhibited in galleries, national juried exhibits and international exhibits. Their work is also included in private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
