Salsa y Salsa
Handweavers Guild of America
Convergence 2008 Tampa Bay
Multimedia Fiber Arts Exhibit

Exhibit: May 23 - August 23, 2008
The Arts Center, St. Petersburg, Florida

An international juried exhibit featuring multimedia fiber arts works.

The spicy spectrum of saturated color influenced by the Caribbean, Central and South American societies permeates Florida. Salsa fires our taste buds and puts the passion in our music. Let these images inspire this Multimedia Fiber Arts exhibit, which is open to work created using any fiber arts technique.

The juror will independently screen all images and make the preliminary selection of all work in the exhibition.
Pieces will be evaluated on concept, design, technique, and overall suitability of the technique and/or materials. Creative exploration is encouraged.

Accepted work is subject to final approval by the juror's representative after the actual work arrives at The Arts Center.

Two pieces may be entered per artist. Pieces must be originally conceived and created by the entrant. The work should be one-of-a-kind, not previously exhibited at a Convergence, and completed within the last two years (since January 2006) and not previously published.

Submitted work may exhibit one or more of any fiber technique, including, but not limited to, weaving, knitting, basketry, braiding, crochet, surface design and shibori.

The size of finished work may not exceed 60 inches (1.524 meters) in any dimension and it may not exceed 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms) in weight.

Work executed under classroom/educational guidance or supervision is not eligible.

Work on exhibit will not be for sale.

First, second and third place awards will be selected by the juror. Additional special criteria awards may be available. For updates please check the HGA Web site:
