American Tapestry Biennial 10

Deadline: October 31, 2013 (RECEIVE) or (ONLINE)

American Tapestry Biennial 10

American Tapestry Alliance
Mid April 2014 - Late January 2015

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 tapestry artists around the world. The intention of this show is to include not only artists who work within more traditional definitions of tapestry, but also those artists whose work expands upon the core principles of the medium as it explores new techniques and processes.

This is the only ATA show that accepts larger tapestries and so we welcome them.

Entry to ATB 10 is open to all tapestry artists who design and weave their own tapestries (defined as “hand-woven, weft-faced fabric with discontinuous wefts”), either individually or collaboratively (all assistants shall be named). Multimedia work will be considered as long as the primary medium is tapestry. Entries must be one-of-a-kind and have been completed after January 2010. Entries may not have been shown previously in any ATA exhibition, including the Unjuried Small Format show. Artists may submit up to three pieces, but a maximum of one piece per artist will be accepted.

The juror will select two tapestries to be awarded the First and Second Place Teitelbaum Awards. These awards are made possible by the Teitelbaum Legacy Gift to ATA. The First Place award winner will receive $300 and the Second Place award winner will receive $200
