Tapestry Unlimited is American Tapestry Alliance’s 11th annual international unjuried small format exhibition. We are expecting upwards of 250 participants who will show their work at the Milwaukee Public Library this upcoming summer. Everyone who signs up to participate by January 31st 2016 will be included in the exhibition, and your tapestry does not need to be mailed to us until March 2016. There is an exhibition fee of $40 which pays for both the return postage for you tapestry as well an exhibition catalogue, which everyone’s tapestry will be featured in. We invite entries which work within more traditional definitions of tapestry as well as ones which expand upon them, including multimedia work.
The American Tapestry Alliance is a nonprofit organization that provides programming for tapestry weavers around the world, including exhibitions, both juried and unjuried, in museums, art centers and online, along with exhibition catalogues. We offer workshops, lectures, oneonone mentoring and online educational articles as well as awards, including scholarships, membership grants, an international student award, and the Award of Excellence. We also put out a quarterly newsletter, monthly eNews & eKudos and CODA, an annual digest. Members benefit from personalized artist pages on our website, online exhibitions, educational articles, access to scholarships and more.
