CyberFyber International Art Jan. 8- 20 @80808

A while ago; I mentioned we would be having a cyber fyber festival in January 2009. The exhibit will bring awareness to a variety of artists locally and globally as well as an awareness of the value of using the Internet blog for your art career. This show is about the blogger artist and the fiber artist exhibiting globally through blogging. Much thanks to Susan Lenz for her creative genius in developing this show.

"CYBER FYBER EXHIBITION is an international event scheduled at Gallery 80808/Vista Studios, 808 Lady Street in downtown Columbia, South Carolina, USA from January 8th through 20th, 2009. The focus of this exhibition is to highlight the influences of Internet access for today's fiber artists.

On Saturday, January 17, 2009 CYBER FYBER will be celebrating ATC day! The highlight of the afternoon will be the INTERNATIONAL RANDOM ATC Swap! ANYONE can participate, there's no restriction on age, location, or artistic medium! Here's how to add your ATC(s) to the mix: Mail up to three ATCs to: CYBER FYBER 2123 Park Street Columbia, SC 29201 Include a self-address, sufficiently stamped envelope for each ATC you send. If you are located outside the USA....send the envelope with stamps from your own country! DEADLINE: EVERYTHING MUST ARRIVE BEFORE JANUARY 17!" (from the blog by Susan Lenz)

This show is a way to show the world our art and blogging community. It highlights, how artists are using their blogs to develop international connections and how meaningful use of the Internet can lead to more awareness. It is also a way to showcase the wonderful variety found in textiles and fiber arts as well as create awareness of Artists Trading Cards and blogging.
