The American Tapestry Alliance (ATA) is pleased to announce that the following artists will be exhibiting their tapestries in Small Tapestry International 2: Passages. From 80 artists and 125 entries, the juror, Kay Lawrence, Director of the South Australian School of Art, chose 47 tapestries from 41 artists to be included in the show. She said:
“In deciding which works would be accepted or excluded I looked for innovative approaches to the theme in relation to concept or technique…and particularly for entries that made me think more deeply about the term ‘passage’, or delighted me with their skilful or quirky use of the medium.
Thanks to the generosity of the Teitelbaum Legacy Gift, ATA offers two monetary awards for Small Tapestry International. The juror selects pieces that (s)he thinks are outstanding. The First Place Teitelbaum Award Winner is Mary Lane, for her tapestry Untitled #134. The Second Place Teitelbaum Award Winner is Joyce Hayes, for her tapestry, Conciliation Fall.
