Someone out there will love your embroidery! Yet many wonderfully skilled embroiderers seem reluctant to enter exhibitions, juried events or competitions. This course will teach you how to find exhibition opportunities, adhere to requirements, set a pace for preparations, write the artist statement, and protect your work when mailing it. Learn to recognize valid critiques and find the nugget of learning in them. Go behind the scenes to see how exhibits are planned, set up, and returned. Learn secrets of photographing embroidery with a digital camera.
This class is relevant if you would like to enter local, regional, or national exhibitions, participate in EGA’s Challenge or Challenge with a Twist, a Master Craftsman Program, enter other EGA exhibits and awards, teach, or submit work to jury into EGA’s Fiber Forum. As a former director of an arts center and an actively exhibiting embroidery artist, Laura can tell you all the secrets.
