Call for Entries

June and July 2017


I compile a list of local, regional and national exhibitions that might be of interest to fiber artists. I will not knowingly list unscrupulous galleries. Please check each individual gallery and use your own judgment about entering the exhibitions. Check their websites for details. Some dates are for postmark dates, some for receipt of entry and some dates are for online entries. I post the Call for Entries on the Fiberarts Guild website every other month (Feb., Apr., Jun., Aug., Oct. and Dec.). When I receive additional information about upcoming exhibits I post them on the Fiberart Guild (members only) Facebook page.
