The Textile Study Group of New York (TSGNY) has announced a call for entries for the 2018 Nancy and Harry Koenigsberg Award. The winner will receive a $1,500 award and a one-year TSGNY membership. They must give a presentation (in person or via Skype) at the June 20th TSGNY meeting held in New York City. Entries will be juried by the TSGNY Student Award Committee. The TSGNY defines fiber art as “fine art made with flexible materials.” Non-fiber artworks that are constructed with textile techniques are also eligible. Artworks may be flat or sculptural, functional or non-functional. There are absolutely no limitations on materials, which may be natural or man-made. Techniques include (but are not limited to) tapestries, quilts, basketry, needlework, hangings, crochet, beadwork, weaving, embroidery, knotting, jewelry, surface design, knitting, costumes, collage, soft sculpture, and wearables. Undergraduate students and graduate students who create fiber artwork and who are matriculated in a college, school, or university in CT, DC, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VA, and VT are invited to submit their fiber artwork for the award. There are no entry fees and students do NOT need to join the TSGNY in order to enter. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
