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 Opening Reception vote for their favorite pieces in each of the categories and for a Best of Show. In addition, the Margaret Mott Award is presented to a Guild member who has never exhibited in a juried show, and whose handwoven piece is entirely executed by the recipient. This award has been presented at every Members’ Show since 1992. This year the Georgia Cotton Commission will sponsor a Best in Show made with Cotton Award for a work comprised of a minimum of 50% cotton. The Winner will receive a certificate and ribbon in addition to a monetary award. The Margaret Mott and Georgia Cotton Commission awards are selected by a local fiber expert.
The Members’ Show 2018 will be held at Pinckneyville Park Community Recreation Center, 4650 Peachtree Industrial Blvd., Norcross, GA 30071. The opening Reception is Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
