Massachusetts & Rhode Island Chapter

The Art Cloth Network call for new members is coming soon!

September 1 – October 31, 2018

Our organization defines “Art Cloth” as material transformed by adding or subtracting color, line, shape, texture or fiber to make a compelling surface and composition. This can include three-dimensional art and work meant for outdoor display.

As a thirty-member juried community of artists, we work together to encourage individual artistic development, explore the boundaries of our medium, and educate others about our art. We organize annual meetings held in a variety of locations across the country. Exhibiting our work is an important part of our mission to raise awareness of art cloth as a fine art medium. We have yearly calls-for-entry that are juried by well-known artists, often arranged by theme, and are exhibited in a variety of galleries and other venues.
