Headdresses, whether practical or ceremonial, have traditionally made a statement about the wearer and their cultural community. Our contemporary take on these historical artifacts will similarly make a statement about ourselves and our own cultural environments, while exploring an exciting diversity of techniques and media, as well as innovative approaches to the theme.

We are interested in your contemporary headdress which uses a cultural artifact as inspiration – it doesn’t have to be wearable, and it can be a two-dimensional interpretation.

The exhibition is open to all fibre artists who are members of the Surface Design Association. Membership information can be found on the SDA website.

If you have any questions you may also contact Jennifer Love.

Location: North Vancouver, British Columbia
Deadline: Submissions must be received by May 4, 2013
Cost: See Call for Submissions –
