A fissure is simply a crack, an opening, a separation, a split.
Other interpretations include vent, opening, breach, or cleft: A breach in the space/time continuum, or a black hole.
A long narrow opening in rock. A volcanic fissure might spew lava, steam or smoke.
A biological fissure may be a split or break in tissue. Our relationships with others may develop fissures, miscommunications, a lack of togetherness.
Here in Oregon, some streams pour out of fissures, or disappear into fissures, only to reappear farther down the hillside.
Artists are encouraged to consider and explore the varieties of meaning, image and experience and follow where that particular fissure takes you.

Accepted Entries will be selected by Contemporary Fiber Artist Betty Busby
Betty Busby Biography:
After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design with a ceramics major, Betty Busby founded a custom ceramic tile manufacturing firm in Los Angeles.
After nearly 20 years of running the firm, she sold the business in 1994 (it is still in operation to this day). Upon
relocating to New Mexico, she changed the focus of her art work to fiber, taking it full time in 2004.
Her manufacturing background has led to constant experimentation with new materials and
techniques that fuel her work. The classic fractal structures of the sub microscopic world are a
constant inspiration, as are natural processes, such as oxidation, replication and growth.
