Pop Up Exhibits

for Rug Hooking Week 2021

NEW in 2021 --- Through social media, we know that there has been a monumental amount of textile created in 2020 alone, due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic. Folks stayed closer to home & with more time to create art, as an expression of frustrations, sadness & challenges. With that in mind, we expect that there will be a significant increase in the number of submissions to the 2021 Main Exhibit. We are also combining some of the 2020 & 2021 Feature, Special, & Celebration Exhibits into 2021. Therefore, there will be some new guidelines & limits for registering for this year’s Main Exhibit. But we want to give everyone the opportunity to display and share some of this amazing work, so we have scheduled a “POP UP” Exhibit.

This year’s Pop-Up Exhibit will be focused on the topic: Current Events, so entries should be relevant to that topic. The Pop-Up Exhibit will be held on Friday night, August 20th during the Hook-In. (It will be similar to our Thursday Show & Tell.) So, we invite you to bring & display your Current Event piece in the Heritage Inn – Atrium. This is a great opportunity to meet the artists, network, discuss the topic, techniques, design, colors & inspiration.

Guidelines & Requirements:  

  1. The piece should be based on the following topic: Current Events

  2. There are “no” restrictions regarding: techniques, materials, or size.

  3. DO NOT REGISTER THESE RUGS!

  4. Fill-out an EXHIBIT CARD & display it with your piece. (Blank Exhibit Cards will be available that night.)
