Tapestry Call for Entries

September 30, 2020: Materials Hard and Soft

The Greater Denton Arts Council presents the 34th annual Materials: Hard + Soft International Contemporary Craft Competition and Exhibition. Materials: Hard + Soft began in 1987 in Denton, Texas as a celebration of the evolving field of contemporary craft and the remarkable creativity and innovation of artists who push the boundaries of their chosen media including: clay, fiber, glass, metal, paper, wood, or any combination of craft media. This year’s juror is Pablo Barrera of the Oklahoma Contemporary. Barrera will select approximately 70 pieces for exhibition and award prizes of $250, $500, $750, and $1,000. Selected works will be included in an exhibition in Denton, Texas, our online exhibition & store, and a printed catalog. There is a $30 entry fee that covers up to 3 entries. Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2020. Questions can be emailed to exhibit@dentonarts.com.
