Once long ago when I lived in a daylight world, the world being too much
for me, I would have gone to grass. Face downward and very close to the
green stems, I became one with the ants and aphids and sow bugs, no
longer a colossus. And in a ferocious jungle of grass I found the
distraction that meant peace.
-John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent

What artist has not been inspired at some point by the patterns, textures, and
colors provided so readily in the natural world?

The Textile Study Group of New Bedford, MA is seeking entries for a juried exhibition of yardage influenced by the infinite microcosm of the natural world.

Eligibility: The competition is open at all artists. Any material is acceptable, but the artist must use a textile technique or combination of techniques traditionally associated with textiles (knitting, printing, crocheting, dyeing, knotting, netting, feltmaking, coiling, weaving, papermaking, etc.) Three-dimensional work can be incorporated into the two-dimensional format of the yardage length.

Only slides or digital images on CD will be accepted for entry.

Entry fee: $25.00

Jurors: Denyse Schmidt, nationally known quilt designer and artist
Laura Strand, Associate Professor of Art, Textiles at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
