CLICK HERE TO SUBMIT WORK
Invitation to all artists worldwide to submit artwork for this exhibition.
Textiles, one of the oldest forms of production, connect us to history and human experience. How do practices, beliefs and knowledge shape self-identity and cultural fabric?
Artists are invited to submit work that places emphasis on the concept of cloth through broad definition and use of materials. Traditional or uncommon approaches to weaving, stitching, knitting, dyeing, felting, crochet, layering, surface embellishment and patterns as well as digital interpretation may be applied. All materials and techniques will be considered.
The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver: firstname.lastname@example.org. All applicants should submit an artist’s statement about their body of work. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG.
