American Tapestry Biennial 13 Online Entry Form

Fill out this form to enter the exhibition.
  • Eligibility Requirements

    Entry to ATB 13 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 2016. 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.

  • Submission Information

    The juror will select tapestries from digital images. Image quality may influence the juror's decision. Only completed tapestries will be juried.

    For each entry, send two digital images: one of the entire piece and one detail. The images should be 300 ppi; exactly 2100 pixels on the longest side; uncompressed; saved with maximum image quality; and in either jpeg, or tiff format.

    Do not crop the edges of the tapestry out of your image, if they will be seen when hung.

    Label your image files with your last name and the title of the piece, e.g. Doe, Ruminations and Doe, Ruminations, detail.

  • Conditions for Participation

    Artists are responsible for all shipping and insurance costs to the first venue and return shipping and insurance costs from the final venue.

    Work that differs significantly from the submitted image will be excluded from the exhibition.

    Complete exhibition instructions will be sent to the accepted artists. Accepted works not completely prepared for installation may be returned.

    Tapestries may be offered for sale at some of the venues. This will be optional for the artists. If the tapestries are offered for sale, a commission will be paid to the venue. This does not affect international entries which retain their duty free status by being NFS. Details will be sent to the accepted artists.

    Tapestries must remain with the show through the last scheduled venue. Dates that the tapestries will be committed: June 2020 - January 2021. Please note that these dates may change.
