Threads That Bind: When the Fabric of Social Culture Unravels

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Threads That Bind, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s national juried show BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition) calls for submissions from artists working in traditional and/or contemporary approaches to fiber. Submissions have to use fiber materials and/or processes (knitting, weaving, spinning, embroidery, rug-making, crochet, beading, braiding, needlepoint, dyeing, cross-stitch, sewing) as a primary component of the work. The final form of submitted artwork may be a photograph, sculpture, wearable or decorative art or fashion, performance or video, as well as an embroidered, crocheted, woven, dyed or knitted wall-hung or free-standing piece. We welcome large-scale work up to 96" in any direction.

In addition to images of up to 3 artworks, please write 1-3 sentences answering one of the above 3 questions.
