Announcing Members’ Show 2018

The Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild (CHG) sponsors an exhibition every year. In odd-numbered years, CHG hosts the Chattahoochee Biennial of Textiles, a juried exhibit open to all fiber artists. In even-numbered years, CHG holds an exhibition which is open only to CHG members.

So, 2018 is the year for the Members’ Show.

Members may submit up to three pieces; each piece must have been completed within the last two years. Attendees of the Members’ Show vote for their favorite pieces in multiple categories. In addition, the Margaret Mott Award is presented to a Guild member who has never exhibited in a juried show, and whose handwoven is entirely executed by the recipient. This award has been presented at every Members’ Show since 1992.

Members’ Show 2018 will be held at Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center, 4650 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Norcross, GA 30071. Opening Reception is planned for Thursday, May 10, 2018. Look for submission details in an upcoming issue of Fiber Focus.

For now, LEARN LIVE HOPE YESTERDAY TODAY TOMORROW and weave, weave, weave!!!
