 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 (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.
