CALL FOR ENTRIES: Textile Arts and Video

The Textile Arts Center

505 Carroll Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215

invites artist submissions for:

“Missing/Missed”, a fiber show curated by Scott Henstrand

We all have things we yearn for in the future and from the past that drive us. These things (lovers and pets and cars and mothers and ideas and…) drive us. They swirl around under the surface. We desire to capture and recapture the thing in memory or actuality. Most of the time we don’t know exactly what any one thing is; we can’t quite put our finger on the exact demand.

Artists are asked to submit the missing or missed piece, searching behind their memories and yearnings for that created thing that will bring it all together. 

Artist Postmark Deadline: Nov 30, 2010

Exhibition Dates: Jan 14 – Feb 25,2011

Opening Reception: Jan 14, 8-11 PM

For full prospectus, please visit The Textile Center website.
