Small Tapestry International 6: Beyond the Edge

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

    Entry to STI 6: Beyond the Edge is open to all tapestry artists who design and weave their own tapestries (defined as “hand-woven, weft-faced fabric with discontinuous wefts”), either individually or collaboratively (all assistants shall be named). 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 2017. 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.

    Size Restrictrions: 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. For example, a piece can be 10 x 10 inches (25 x 25 cm) or the sides can be of different lengths, as long as the length times width does not exceed 100 square inches and no dimension is longer than 20 inches (50 cm). Three-dimensional pieces may not exceed 10 inches (25 cms) in height, width, or depth. Tapestries must be mounted. If the mount or frame is meant to show when hung, that treatment must be shown in the entry image. The mount may extend up to 3 inches beyond the tapestry on every side. For example the mount for a 10” x 10” tapestry may be up to 16” x 16”. If accepted, the work must arrive ready to hang.
