American Tapestry Alliance

American Tapestry Alliance

The American Tapestry Alliance was founded in 1982 in order to promote awareness and appreciation of tapestries designed in America. Today ATA's membership spans the globe and their programming includes a wide range of educational, exhibition, award, outreach and promotional efforts. ATA's programs serve the goals of their Mission Statement:

  • to promote an awareness of and appreciation for woven tapestries designed and woven by individual artists
  • to encourage and recognize superior quality tapestries
  • to encourage educational opportunities in the field of tapestry
  • to sponsor exhibitions of tapestries
  • to establish a network for tapestry weavers throughout the world
  • to educate the public about the history and techniques involved in tapestry making

ATA's extensive website offers a rich array of resources including:

  • TEx@ATA, an online exhibition program
  • Educational Articles
  • Artist Pages

Full color catalogs document ATA's international, juried exhibitions and a Quarterly newsletter presents an in depth examination of changing themes. Monthly eNews and eKudos offer information about current shows, workshops and other tapestry related events.
