The Handweavers Guild of America announces a call to all fiber artists for entries in our 2016 exhibitions taking place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Exhibitions will take place August 3 – 6, 2016 at the Wisconsin Center with the exception of Small Expressions which will take place July 23 – August 14, 2016 at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Exhibitions include:

International juried exhibit of small-scale fiber pieces sponsored annually by the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc. Deadline to enter is January 19, 2016.
International juried exhibit featuring one-of-a-kind fashion that shows understanding of the body and body movement, along with runway presence and overall suitability of the technique and/or materials. Deadline to enter is January 20, 2016.
An international juried exhibit featuring lengths of constructed or embellished yardage. Deadline to enter is January 27, 2016.
International juried exhibit open to work created using any fiber arts technique. Deadline to enter is February 1, 2016.

HGA’s Convergence® 2016 conference offers a broad range of exhibits for a wide variety of fiber arts. We invite you to enter your work in these juried exhibits that showcase the best in weaving, spinning, dyeing, basketmaking, and related fiber arts. Create a piece that embodies the Convergence® 2016 spirit.

Cost to enter per exhibition is $30 for members, $45 for non-members, and free for students. The juror will independently screen all images and make the preliminary selection of all work in the exhibition. Entries will be evaluated on concept, design, technique, craftsmanship and creative exploration. Pieces must be originally conceived and created by the entrant. All work must be of exhibition quality, completed within the last two years (since January 2014) and not previously published in any national or international print publication. A complete list of exhibition requirements and applications to exhibit are available online.
