Chicago Gallery Seeks Textile Art

   

Between the Seams — Woman Made Gallery
Deadline: November 3, 2017

Chicago, IL
Exhibition Dates: January 19 – February 10, 2018

Textiles, one of the oldest forms of production, connect us to history and human experience. How do practices, beliefs and knowledge shape self-identity and cultural fabric?

Artists are invited to submit work that places emphasis on the concept of cloth through broad definition and use of materials. Traditional or uncommon approaches to weaving, stitching, knitting, dyeing, felting, crochet, layering, surface embellishment and patterns as well as digital interpretation may be applied. All materials and techniques will be considered.

The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send in an email to request a fee waiver: general@womanmade.org.

They encourage entries of recent works, but there is no restriction in the creation date. All applicants should submit an artist’s statement about their body of work. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG.

Juror: Nnenna Okore

Woman Made Gallery annual programs include six to eight juried exhibitions which explore a wide variety of themes: spirituality, environmental concerns, race and gender issues, historical observations, political investigations, etc. with an emphasis on celebrating human diversity. The majority of exhibitions are open to artists worldwide and of all genders working across all disciplines. Exceptions are the annual International Open which invites female identified artists to submit their work.
