American Tapestry Biennial 8

Deadline: November 30, 2009 (RECEIVE)

American Tapestry Biennial 8

The American Tapestry Alliance
San Jose, CA

The American Tapestry Alliance is a not-for-profit, member-supported organization seeking to exhibit the best of contemporary tapestry. Since 1986 ATA has sponsored a biennial, juried exhibition. ATA invites submissions from all tapestry artists for ATB 8.

Entry to ATB 8 is open to all artists who design and weave their own tapestries (defined as "handwoven, weft-faced fabric with discontinuous wefts") either individually or collaboratively (all assistants shall be named). Entries must be one-of-a-kind and have been completed after January 2006. Artists may submit two entries for consideration.

Submissions (truncated)
• The juror will select tapestries from digital images; image quality may influence the juror’s decision. Only completed tapestries will be juried.
• Entries must be submitted as digital file on CD; if two entries are submitted, both may be on the same CD.
• Tapestries must be available for the duration of the exhibition until July 2011.
