Missouri Fiber Artists PAIRINGS: A Year-Long Fiber Arts Collaboration
January 16 – April 3, 2016
As an organization, part of the Missouri Fiber Artists mission is to build a vibrant fiber community, and the “Pairings” Exhibition has done just that. Featuring 38 pairs of artists (including one foursome and two threesomes), the “Pairings” show premiered at the St. Louis Artists Guild on September 11, 2015. The Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art is fortunate to be a stop on the exhibition route. The show is outstanding and includes more than 80 artists from across the state of Missouri.
More than 100 works of art will be on display.

The Pairings exhibit is the culmination of a year-long collaboration that began in July 2014, in which fiber artists paired up (two or more artists per pair) to visit each other’s studios, talk about their art, and become familiar with each other’s artwork. Pairs were challenged to create one collaborative piece, and each member of the pair was asked to create an individual piece to reflect the influence of the collaboration.
