Art Cloth Network Blog: Finding Exhibition Venues
My blog posting is about the various ways you can search for exhibition venues. Once you see how many opportunities are available out there for your work as an individual and also for our group you will be energized to go submit your work!
This is by far the easiest way to find venues. You can sign up for various lists that send you upcoming opportunities on a regular basis. Below are some of the best ones.
There are hundreds of possibilities on this site. It takes some time to go through them but there is always something of interest from exhibits to residencies and everything in between.
Similar sites include:
Fiber specific exhibit info is available on both the SDA and SAQA sites.
You can also follow local and regional museums and organizations:
For example, this is the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber
And there are individuals who post possible entries on their blogs and email letters
For example, Lyric Kinard, a fiber artist in the North Carolina has a call for entry list on her website.
Usually if you sign up to follow or get on the email list the information will come to you on a monthly or weekly basis. Going htrough the listings can take time but you do hone your eye to see the words that matter. And it is ifun to see hwat kinds of exhibits are going out there in the broader art world. Also many ehxiibts now include fiber as a medium which allows you to submit and show in a different environment.
So go forth and search and REMEMBER TO CONTACT THE EHXIBIT COMMITTEE WITH THE GREAT THIGNS YOU FIND FOR ART CLOTH NETWORK.
