The Fibre Art Collection

2014 marks 25 years of collecting by Cambridge Galleries, now Idea Exchange. Over 115 Canadian artists are represented in the permanent collection dedicated to fibre based works. In the late eighties, we decided to pursue a particular collection mandate focused on the fibre medium, partly because the region’s flourishing industrial base was originally established by the textile industry, and partly because such specialization would set us apart from other institutional collectors. The works in our permanent collection are decidedly contemporary, pushing the limits on all fronts.
