Deadline: October 21, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Out of the Loop

West Hartford Art League
West Hartford, CT
November 11- December 5, 2010

The West Hartford Art League is pleased to announce a call for entries for its first broad-scale fiber arts show to showcase out-of-the-ordinary, contemporary fiber works that advance traditional techniques through radically innovative interpretations. In other words, definitely out of the loop!

Entries can include (but are not limited to): surface design, felting, quilting, knotting, weaving, knitting, fiber sculpture, basketry, handcrafted paper and needlework. We encourage two and three-dimensional works including sculptural pieces. The juror will be looking for exceptional craftsmanship as well as "out of the box" thinking, design and execution.

Eligibility: All work must be the original work of the artist and must have been completed within two years of the entry deadline and not previously exhibited in a WHAL juried show. All work must be at least 50% fiber or textile that has been hand-manipulated. All entries must be installation-ready with appropriate hanging rods or mounting devices if necessary. No complex installations.

Entry Fee: Fee for each entry: $20 non-members, $15 members. Up to four pieces may be submitted.

Juror: Ed Johnetta Fowler Miller, Fiber artist, quilter, teacher, curator, and lecturer.

Sales: All artwork must be for sale. A 30% commission is taken on all sales.
