Anchorage artist Amy Meissner has won the prestigious Earth, Fire and Fibre Juror’s Choice Award for Spontaneous Combustion, an art quilt.
Earth, Fire and Fibre, the Anchorage Museum’s biennial craft exhibition, is one of the state’s longest running juried exhibitions. It showcases Alaska artists working with traditional craft materials such as fibre, clay and bone. Selected artworks are chosen for the artists’ superb skills and their forward-thinking concepts and methods.
This year’s entries included 360 works of art by 119 Alaska artists. For the exhibition, that pool was narrowed down to 41 works of art by 34 artists. This exhibition was juried by Andrew Glasgow of Asheville, N.C. Glasgow’s resume includes the American Craft Council, Southern Highland Craft Guide and Birmingham (Ala.) Museum of Art.
