FAMA promotes and encourages excellence in the creation, experience, and support of the arts for the enrichment of our total community. FAMA does not discriminate against any artist or applicant because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation or belief, age, economic standing, or disability.


Who judges the artwork? Our review process for art selection follows anonymous and blind adjudication procedures. Our judges are made up from a pool of professionals in the arts field who are or will become honorary members of FAMA.


 Is there a fee for submission? Our juried exhibitions and events are open to all FAMA members with a minimal fee of $15 for each show. Non members fee of $45.00 includes a one year membership. 

Why is there a fee for submission. FAMA prouds itself on delivering the highest quality, thematically cohesive, non biased, inclusive projects that unfortunately entail costs. FAMA is run by non-salaried volunteer members.

What does the fee cover? The $15 fee covers the cost of the exhibition, professional photo documentation video (est. cost of $600.00), public education workshops (stipend per artist @250.00), exciting and cohesive installation design and dismantling ($500-$800), marketing, promotion, and printing cost of poster signage ($400-$800 estimated cost), website design and yearly expenses ($400), OVR ($1000) or Virtual exhibition creation (250), and offset the cost of hardship membership.

What is the function of FAMA? FAMA does not make commissions from the sale of work exhibited or is responsible for marketing artists.. Our goal is to educate the public on the importance of textiles and fibers within the history of art. As such, our main goal is education.

May I submit if I am not a fiber artist? Yes, FAMA is open to all artists and art enthusiasts who share our same enthusiasm for excellence, education, and promotion of the arts.

Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse is an artist call for participation in a textile-based group installation, consisting of equally sized, small quilted artworks displayed together to make one monumental quilt-like wall piece.  

With this installation, over 100 Fiber-Artists Miami Association, FAMA artists work towards unity; we use the metaphor Women Pulling at the Threads of Social Discourse to celebrate difference and start a conversation about the new "norm". The installation is a microcosm of personal statements, honoring and intercrossing quilting tradition to accommodate the contemporary individual voice. 

The monumental installation reinforces the power of the group that changes the fabric of society.
