As part of our effort to increase awareness of and appreciation for the fiber arts, HGA sponsors exhibitions of fiber art each year. These exhibitions are presented in prominent venues around the US, and the works of fiber art contribute to the arts environment in the areas in which they are shown.

Small Expressions  is an annual international juried exhibit sponsored by the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc., to showcase fiber art on a small scale [not to exceed 15 inches (38cm) in any direction].

In even-numbered years, HGA sponsors juried exhibits in conjunction with HGA's biennial Convergence® conference. With works selected by well-known jurors, these exhibits bring people from all over the world to view these one-of-a-kind pieces.
