About the Show
Floored is an exhibition of handcrafted rugs that explores the possibilities of what rug making can do in all of its varied forms. Hooked, knotted, latched, and woven rugs will all be considered for exhibition. This exhibition is looking for work that pushes the traditional boundaries of rug making, whether it be through: color, form, materials, pattern or subject matter. Original, modern, and contemporary designs are encouraged. Designs do not need to be original, but we do ask that you acknowledge the original designer. Pieces will be exhibited as wall art, unless otherwise indicated by the artist on the submission form.

How to Submit
Print out and fill in the submission form. Bring your work with the submission form to the Schnormeier Gallery. You may submit up to 5 pieces for consideration. If you wish to sell any of your work, indicate the price. Otherwise mark NFS and write a dollar amount for its insured value. For insurance and gallery purposes please read and complete the contract below and include it with your submissions. The gallery staff will notify you about which pieces will be in the exhibit. All work must be dropped off at the gallery no later than Friday, June 14th at 5 p.m. For more information or questions, please contact Laura Tabbut at lautabbut@mvnu.edu. The gallery is open M-F from 1-5 p.m.
