(MAM) & Yard School of Art offer American, Native American, & contemporary art exhibitions, programs, & classes in NJ


New Directions in Fiber Art


February 9 - June 16


MAM will be exhibiting New Directions in Fiber Art, the New Jersey Arts Annual exhibition highlighting New Jersey’s visual artists sponsored by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.  This juried show will consist of works created in the array of traditional and contemporary fibrous materials and methods all completed since 2015. 


As humanity relies increasingly upon technology, there is a growing appreciation of the personal, sensuous delivery of mood and content through the familiar components of fiber.  Putting forth the discoveries of their world and times, these artists engage the expressive potential of ancient methods with contemporary voices.


The New Jersey Arts Annual is a unique series of exhibitions highlighting the State’s visual artists. One exhibition takes place each year in either fine arts or crafts, in alternating sequence. These exhibitions are open to any artist currently living or working in New Jersey. The Arts Annual series is sponsored by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a partner Agency of the National Endowment of the Arts.
