ATA’s Media Tour is an opportunity for ATA members to share their talents, insights, experiences, and work with fellow members and those who are interested in tapestry weaving. Held over the third week of January, the week-long program features an ATA member on each of the five days who interact with enthusiasts on Instagram and Facebook through live videos, links to pre-recorded demonstrations, and posts about their processes.
ATA Media Tour 2022
Media Tour 2022 will focus on inspiring tapestry weavers to explore small format tapestry and encourage them to consider submitting work to be included in the 2022 Unjuried Small Format Exhibition titled, Tiny But Mighty which will take place at the Emporium Gallery in Knoxville, TN. Five well-known tapestry weavers will be sharing tips on how to conceptually develop a theme or concept, hone design techniques, achieve desired colors through dyeing, what yarns are best, and how to finish a tapestry for exhibition.
This year’s featured artists include Mary Zicafoose, Tommye Scanlin, David Huestess, Kennita Tully, and Laura Berlage. The Media Tour will launch on Monday, January 17, 2022, and run through Friday, January 21, 2022. Make sure to tune in at 2 pm Eastern to interact with our featured artists directly through live videos or simply search #ATAmediatour or #ATAmediatour2022 on Instagram to view all posts.
