WCAC Seeking Artists For Textile & Weaving Exhibit

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

WILLIAMSBURG-As the Williamsburg Contemporary Art Center (WCAC) prepares for its upcoming Textile & Weaving Extravaganza Show, the center is looking for artisans to participate.

The show, which will run September 1-18, is open to all textile and weaving artists who work with different forms, styles, and variations. Both WCAC members and non-members are welcome.

Those interested in participating can submit up to six small items or three large quilts, or a combination of both. Work must be available for sale during the event.

WCAC is looking for artists with experience in different forms of textile and weaving, both wearable and decorative pieces to include quilting, weaving, fiber art, paper art, quilling, rope baskets, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, beading, and sewing.

The show will also include antique quilts, textiles, and other woven pieces with a history.

Deadline to register for participation is Wednesday, August 25. For more information, contact show coordinator Priscilla Stultz at or call 757-378-2348.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
