Deadline: August 20, 2010 (RECEIVE) or (EMAIL)

Textile Arts Center

Brooklyn, New York City, NY
September 16- October 11, 2010

Call for Cutting Edge Contemporary fiber work and work that references or utilizes fiber or fiber techniques in innovative ways.

The brand new Textile Arts Center is a gorgeous street level space located in Brooklyn, NYC. The center provides an environment for the professional, the artist, and the student. With an invested interest in the conservation of hand weaving and other fiber arts, the Center offers a fully equipped studio and gallery space for those with enthusiasm and curiosity, with and without experience. It is a place in which craftsmen are, once again, nurtured in their making from beginning to end.

The Textile Art Center calls all fiber artists who wish to submit work to their gallery opening exhibition, which will run from September 16, 2010 to October 11, 2010 at the Textile Arts Center's new location on Carroll Street. In addition, participating artists will have the opportunity to give a talk about their work. Those talks will be scheduled in early October.

As part of our opening party and premier exhibition artist & curator, Joetta Maue, is curating the exhibition of cutting edge fiber work. We are looking for fiber work that pushes the envelope and is a bit of the unexpected. Any fiber technique and materials can be submitted. We hope to see large scale pieces, installation work, suspended and sculptural work, as well as performance, site -specific works, and video.

Every submission should include $30.00 entry fee, which is good for 5 works per entry with a maximum of 1 detail per entry.

All details including payment particulars are on:
