The American Tapestry Alliance is a not-for-profit, member-supported organization seeking to exhibit the best of contemporary tapestry. ATA invites all tapestry artists to submit works to Small Tapestry International 4: Honoring Tradition, Inspiring Innovation. Artists are encouraged to explore the conceptual, technical and metaphorical implications of the theme as they design their submissions. We invite entries not only from 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.

Entry to STI 4: Honoring Tradition, Inspiring Innovation is open to all artists who design and weave their own tapestries either individually or collaboratively (all assistants shall be named). For the purposes of this exhibition, tapestry is defined as hand woven, weft faced fabric using discontinuous wefts. Artists who work in both traditional and more experimental methods are encouraged to enter. 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 2013. Entries may not have been shown previously in any ATA exhibition, including the Un-juried Small Format show. Artists may submit up to three pieces, but a maximum of one piece per artist will be accepted.

Size Restrictions: The size of the tapestry may not exceed a total of 100 square inches (625 square cm) and cannot exceed 20 inches (50 cm) in any one dimension. Three-dimensional pieces may not exceed 10 inches (25 cms) in height, width, or depth. Tapestries must be mounted. The mount may extend up to 3 inches beyond the tapestry on every side. If accepted, the work must arrive ready to hang.
