For the past 46 years the Clay, Fiber, Paper, Metal, Glass, Wood Show has been an important part of our exhibition program. Outstanding, artists, educators, and museum directors have served as judges and have presented important lectures, workshops and demonstrations in connection with their judging. The Octagon has been grateful for their participation which has made the show a major Midwest exhibit.
Initially, Clay, Fiber, Paper, Glass, Metal, Wood Show was a regional juried exhibit held bi-annually previously known as the Clay Fiber Show. In 1986, as part of the 20th anniversary of the Octagon Center for the Arts, Clay Fiber eligibility was extended nationally so that work of artists from throughout the country could be shown. Since then it has been opened to all media and methods including, but not limited to: clay, fiber, paper, glass, metal, wood, painting, collage, photography, and electronic based works.
