JAMESTOWN, ND (Angela Martini) – The Arts Center in Jamestown is looking for artists, seamstresses, weavers and anyone interested in fiber or fabric to participate in a textile challenge.

The exhibition that will result from the “challenge” will be titled Shape Shifting which relates to requirement that the textile be one of these four shapes: 12” square, 12” diameter circle, 12” equilateral triangle, or 12” x 24” rectangle.

The artwork could be a weaving, a quilt, a batik, a felted panel or other expression as long as its primary medium is the textile. The work should be display-ready with sleeve or other hanging device. Artists are encouraged to be inventive, adding mixed media elements as they wish. Artists can submit up to 4 pieces and all will be exhibited. If artists want to combine shapes to create 3-D sculptural pieces that is also a supported option.

Participants will have the entire winter, 6 months, to complete their textile artworks to be ready by April 1, 2018. The exhibition dates are scheduled for April 12 – May 12, 2018.

To join the challenge, contact Sally Jeppson, The Arts Center, PO Box 363, Jamestown, ND or email to Registrations due by November 1, 2017.
