Eye Center of Northern Colorado Exhibition Series
19th Annual Eye Center of Northern Colorado Masks Fundraiser and Exhibition
March 3 – May 5, 2023
The annual Masks exhibition and fundraiser is a crowd favorite that over the years has raised more than $1.9 million dollars to support the museum’s mission. During that time, Masks artists, most of whom live in Northern Colorado, have designed and donated more than 3,250 masks. Each year brings new perspectives as the unadorned ceramic forms leave the museum and return as a creative collection of unique masks. Professional artists, whose creativity is their economic mainstay, and recreational artists, who respond to their need to express their creativeness with ingenious styles and materials all create over 220 Masks to support the museum and its programming.

FiberArt International 2022
August 18 – October 15, 2023
Fiberart International 2022 showcases contemporary artworks that explore innovative uses of fiber materials and processes. The juror-selected exhibition, by design, embodies a global perspective and embraces the immense plurality of contemporary art through the accessible and familiar medium of fiber. The work included was chosen by four world-
renowned jurors from nearly 1,300 submissions by 545 artists residing in 30 countries. These select works explore unexpected relationships between fiber and other creative disciplines through installations, videos, sculpture, and more.
Since 1967, Fiberart International has consistently encouraged the changing definition of contemporary textile art and it is recognized world-wide as a benchmark, documenting trends and innovations in the field. Integral to this long running series of exhibitions is a global view that explores the traditions and intersections of artists and cultures. This platform gives audience to a diverse group of artists whose work has historically been under-represented by larger art institutions.
The exhibition is developed and supported by the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh.

October 27 – January 7, 2024
For the past 40 years, artist Terry Maker has been working with, manipulating, cutting, stuffing, shredding and creating mixed media paintings, objects and sculptures from everyday discarded materials. Her work often plays with scale to present a microcosm and macrocosm of our universe at once. She constantly explores larger questions of desire, death, decay, resurrection and how the everyday and the spiritual interact.
