Review: CONNECTIONS: Small Tapestry International 2009

by Louise Abbott

Connections: Small Tapestry International 2009, is the first in a series of juried small tapestry exhibitions sponsored by the American Tapestry Alliance. Its goal is to explore the boundaries of size, to challenge preconceived ideas of tapestry, and promote the potential of small scale work from a personal as well as universal standpoint. . . Small format tapestry challenges the fiber artist to conceptualize ideas normally explored on a larger scale. Materials shrink, weaving techniques are modified, and finishing processes are challenged. . . . I would encourage new tapestry weavers to become immersed in this new opportunity to weave small -- and grow.
