"The Washington D.C. metropolitan area has some of the finest national and internationally known fiber artists in the country. BlackRock Center for the Arts is proud to present the First Annual “Tribute to Fiber Art” Juried Exhibition. Our goal is not only to support our local area fiber artists but to give East Coast collectors an exhibit of exceptional quality.

Juror, Jodi Walsh, first started this exhibit at APEX Gallery on 7th Street in Washington DC. “Tribute to Fiber Art” was reviewed by the Washington Post and grew into an outstanding exhibit that was supported by the Smithsonian by giving annual tours to their collectors.

Because of her extensive travels overseas Jodi understands the importance of fiber art to the art world. “Fiber artists have given new life to their medium by exploring new techniques and mediums. Combining the old and the new creates art work that is both stimulating and highly collectable. With the support of BlackRock Center for the Arts fiber artists have a new home to exhibit their work and fiber art collectors will enjoy visiting this pristine gallery to view an exceptional exhibit.” Jodi Walsh."
