Shawls knit by Minnesota Knitters' Guild members will be featured in the Textile Center Community Gallery March 4 through April 8, 2011, and all Knitters’ Guild members are eligible to participate.
The only criteria for being an artist entering a shawl is that you must have made the shawl yourself, and you must be a member of the Minnesota Knitters' Guild.
Watch here for a submission form that you can complete to compose the label text that will accompany your shawl. You will write the shawl's title, if any, materials you used, and techniques. Your statement will include the challenges involved and themes interpreted, as well as traditions honored or innovations explored.
The gallery area encompasses the public areas linking the Weavers’ Guild, TC offices, Auditorium, and Library. TC carries insurance, but it is expected that artists have their work covered under their own personal policy. Shawls will be installed with consideration of a reasonable amount of safety for the shawls, and a new security system keeps watch on the area.
Items can be for sale, with 60% of the proceeds going to the artist and 40% to the Textile Center.
Each participating member will need to sign an Artist Agreement giving the Textile Center permission to exhibit your work and to photograph your shawl for promotional purposes.
