Our Summer 2023 issue was a long time in the making. The Fiber Art Now team had the idea to include a Call for Entry for paper in this year’s lineup. Not knowing what the response would be, we took a chance. The result? Paper Made was one of our most popular calls of all time, and the artwork featured in this issue will blow you away!
See how artists around the world are transforming paper by employing all kinds of fiber techniques. The stunning artwork they produced will surprise and delight you with every turn of the page.
