Jurors for this exhibit are Marguerite Gingras, Alice Schlein, and Wendy Weiss.
Show locations include:
The Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE (April 7-May 9, 2014)
Gallery at the Hotel Murano, Tacoma, WA (June 28-30,2014)

Description from prospectus:
"Complex Weavers announces its biennial international juried exhibit featuring works employing complex weave structures interlacing threads and fibers in ways beyond plain weave.
Complex weaving is defined by the cloth produced and the mind it took to create it, not by the equipment used.
There is no requirement that the work must be woven on a minimum number of shafts or on a Jacquard loom.
Works with historic inspiration and interpretations, as well as non-loom interlacements such as ply split braiding, kumihimo and tablet weaving are welcome."
