Fibre Art Network (FAN) 2020

The Fibre Art Network a co-operative of Western Canadian artists committed to promoting fibre as an art form and each other as artists, includes emerging fibre artists, teachers, authors and judges. Inaugurated in 1998, FAN has created 27 exhibitions exhibited at 84 Canadian venues and 7 International venues. To celebrate FAN’s 20th anniversary we created 20/20 Vision.

20/20 Vision explores how we see, there should be no two ways alike for everybody sees and works differently. By definition 20/20 Vision is perfect vision but what is perfect? You would think hindsight is always perfect, yet two people will describe the same event differently. And foresight can literally be anybody’s guess.

Some artists may have a clear vision of the outcome; others work by winging it. Some work with insight, others foresight and still others from hindsight. Some may let their imagination do the looking; others will look to the facts. Some may look back over the past 20 years; others look forward to the next.

We invited our membership to explore their 20/20 vision to look forward or back to interpret the subject figuratively or literally.

We invite you to view our visions to see what you will.
