"Seasonal Palette" Call for Entry now OPEN
Open to ALL SAQA members
This SAQA traveling exhibit will showcase a series of 32 art quilts hung side by side, depicting the seasons of the year. Selected artists will be asked to create a new art quilt 78" long and 32" wide for this exhibit. Artwork will debut at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in November 2012 (on the inside panels of the space that has showcased SAQA artwork in the last few years) and then travel to both art museums and other IQF shows for the following two years.
Artists will be asked to document their creative process, including inspiration, photo images, sketches, diagrams, journal entries, fabric swatches and the like. These will be displayed in booklet format along with the work. Video and smartphone presentations are also being explored.
Curator/Jurors Vicki Mangum and Kathleen McCabe will select the artists from those who express interest through submission of an online portfolio of four pieces. Full details are posted on the SAQA website.
Online entry is open August 1-31, 2011.
