University of Rhode Island Feinstein Providence Campus Gallery
Opening reception: July 17, 5-9pm.
Since the last time I posted, I have received 219 tapestries in the mail. It was so exciting to open all the packages and see the tapestries. The next thing was to figure out how they will all be arranged on the panels for the exhibit. That was a lot of fun, trying to decide which ones will look best together. When the show is up, I will take photos so if you can't make it to the exhibit, you can see how they look.

Last week I saw a sample of the catalog, which was designed by Lindsey Marshall. She did a great job with the design, and the sample looked really good. I can't wait to see the final catalog! Every artist who entered the exhibit will get a complimentary copy, and it will be available for sale on the ATA website. There are also catalogs from previous exhibits available for purchase. I find them very useful for inspiration and for research.
Here (with the artists' permission) is a preview of some of the tapestries that will be in the exhibit:
