  • The Textile Study Group of New York (TSGNY) has announced a call for entries for the Nancy and Harry Koenigsberg Award.

    The winner will receive a $1,500 award, a one-year TSGNY membership and an invitation to present his/her fiber artwork at the June 17th TSGNY meeting held in New York City. Students’ entries will be juried by the TSGNY Student Award Committee.

    College 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.

    The TSGNY defines fiber art as “fine art made with flexible materials.” Fiber 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. Non-fiber artworks that are constructed with textile techniques are also eligible.
