Small Works / Big Impact was a fundraiser exhibition featuring the work of alumni, faculty and staff of the Textile Arts Center’s Artists Programs supporting the TAC’s Artist in Residence Scholarship Fund.
The TAC AIR Scholarship Fund grants free tuition to one artist or designer working with textiles. Scholarship recipients demonstrate commitment to their art practice, identify with a historically underrepresented community in the arts and/or state the need for financial assistance to participate in the program and advance their artistic practice.
Textiles are made by many fibers, stitches, and layers interlaced together. The thinnest thread or smallest stitch each play an important role in supporting the textile. Our community of artists is like a textile in this way, the whole supports the individual and the individual contributes to the integrity of the whole. As a community funded arts organization we value the the support of our students, artists and community members to further our collective mission and dreams.
