All About Us
"“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” – Frida Kahlo
“There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about.” – Helen Frankenthaler
FAMA, Fiber Artists-Miami Association was born amidst the Covid 19 Pandemic and major social upheaval in our city. When our city closed down due to the pandemic, several artists got together online to console each other using the power of the arts. The group formed by Aurora Molina, Alina Rodriguez, Susan Feliciano, Silvana Soriano, Ana Weiss, Teresa Colon, Nancy Mastronardi, Zaida Ruiz, and others formed a bond through daily workshops on embroidery, weaving, natural dyes, and techniques that only used materials at hand. We called those workshops."Threading Thoughts". This led to the idea of a collaborative when artist Evelyn Politzer suggested we form an association that we now call FAMA. One year later we 90+ members strong.
FAMA welcomes like-minded creatives in unifying local fiber arts leaders and enthusiasts. We offer networking opportunities for all through exhibitions, workshops, newsletters, and blogs. Our main goal is the education and advancement of the fiber arts as an art form.
