March 31, 2020: American Tapestry Alliance

Renditions 2020 is American Tapestry Alliance’s biennial unjuried small format tapestry exhibition held in conjunction with Convergence. Open to any member of ATA, this exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for new weavers to share their work with weaving enthusiasts. Experienced weavers often utilize this exhibition to experiment with new techniques and materials. Artists may also submit as a group. Tapestries can fall within traditional definitions of tapestry or push the boundaries. Multimedia work is welcome. For more information about the exhibition that will be held in Knoxville, TN please go here.

2021 Call For Entry in Serbia (Date To Be Determined–stay tuned!)

Atelier 61 (Atelje 61) has a long history of exhibiting tapestries in their own building in Novi Sad and other venues around Serbia. They are currently working on two exhibitions for 2021. One is their Tapestry Triennial and the other is an exhibition, yet to be named, that will be for contemporary tapestries woven in the USA. While we don’t have specific information about these exhibitions at this time, we do want to let you know at this early date that they are in the works. The size requirement for the USA tapestry exhibition is expected to be a minimum of one sqare meter. ATA is not sponsoring the USA exhibition, but it is partnering with Alelier 61 to get the information out to tapestry artists in the United States.  Please watch for more information.
