Artist Callout - NZ Contemporary Textiles

Anyone interested  in this fantastic opportunity, please send me your expressions of interest as soon as you can. Thanks.
Expressions of interest for contemporary textile artists to exhibit in the UK.

Seeking artists whose work brings an innovative and challenging approach to their textile based art practice and whose work shows the best in contemporary fibre, thread, fabric and cloth from New Zealand to take part in an exhibition at the Knitting and Stitching Show, the definitive and best public textile show in the UK and Ireland, travelling between London, Dublin and Harrogate during October and November. In addition to international exposure, there is also potential for selling work, though this is never guaranteed.
The project is coordinated and curated by Alysn Midgelow-Marsden (textile artist) and Arts Council Nelson.
We need you to send:
A brief CV,
An artist statement,
Images of up to 10 works which are representative of your work. Please make clear whether the works shown are the actual works for selection or whether, if selected, you would be making new work for the exhibition.
Include dimensions, approximate weight and hanging method for each work.
There may be transport costs involved, however we are currently seeking funding to assist with this and therefore at this stage, expressions of serious interest for selection are being called for without final commitment.
Send information by email to Maximum attachment size 10MB.
Deadline for information: 15th February 2015
