Textile Arts Center: Missing/Missed

Deadline: November 30, 2010 (POSTMARK) or (EMAIL)

Textile Arts Center

Brooklyn, NY
January 14 - February 25, 2011

We all have things we yearn for in the future and from the past. These things (lovers and pets and cars and mother and idea and …) drive us. They swirl around under the surface. We desire to capture and recapture the thing in memory or actuality. Most of the time we don't know exactly what any one thing is. We can't quite put our finger on the exact demand.

Artists are asked to submit the missing or missed piece, searching behind their memories and yearnings, for that thing, that created thing, that will bring it all together.

Open to all artists 18 or over working in the broad definition of textile and fiber arts.

Selection will be made from CD or DVD only.

Note: video is welcome in all its forms. There will be a video screening evening during the exhibition.

Scott Henstrand- Brooklyn artist and curator.
