I have inspired a "call for work" that is like RIGHT now and has a VERY short turn around but to any of you local fiber artists take advantage. Uforge is a lovely space right on the main strip....

In February, UForge Gallery will host the solo exhibition, featuring Joetta Maue. In her show, when all the plants need water, she'll use embroidery to reflect on times when our domestic environment sends us signals about our lives. Joetta's work is a delightful blend of traditional needlework and contemporary comment.

In conjunction with this show, UForge has issued an invitation for artists and artisans to submit work to a show entitled "Woven." UForge charges a small fee for each piece to be included, and takes a small commission on all sales. They provide publicity, signage and a reception that is part of First Thursdays in Jamaica Plain.

Like the interwoven threads of a piece of fabric, there are tightly-bound connections surrounding us and supporting us in our day-to-day lives. Communities, relationships, technologies, environments, transportation: we are connected to one another in a variety of ways. This open call to artists seeks artwork that is inspired by the idea of connection- whether literal, as in textiles and mesh materials, or figurative, as in love, friendship or creative bonds. Show us how your interactions with the world around you can be revealed in your work, through any media.
Work will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis during the posted registration/drop-off period noted above. Work must be no larger than 24 in. x 36 in. framed/matted and ready to hang.

On view: February 6–March 2, 2014
Reception: February 6, 6-8pm
Drop-off: 1/18, 1/19, 1/25, 1/26, 12-6pm
