Deadlines as listed:
February 15, 2008 and February 22, 2008
[Note date conflict in the brochure double check with Quilts, Inc. for correct deadline]

Tactile Architecture™ 2008
Modern Art Quilts with Architectural Themes


The entry must be a quilt or needle art piece–it must have three layers and some quilting must be visible in the images.
Designs must have a clear architectural motif expressing the artist's understanding of the exhibit's theme. (Original designs are encouraged.)
Can be up to 90" tall and any width.
3-Dimensional work is allowed.

Each entry must be accompanied by an Artist's Statement explaining the artist's inspiration for creating each quilt or needle art piece and how it relates to the architecture theme. The statement should be concise, well-written.


Jurying for Tactile Architecture™ is in March 2008; the results will be mailed to entrants no later than April 18, 2008. All quilts are juried anonymously—the jury members see the images, are notified of each quilt's dimensions, materials, and construction methods, and read the Artist's Statement, but are not told the artist's name. Therefore, it is very important that your statement clearly explains your inspiration for the quilt and how it relates to the show's theme of architecture.


$20 (non-refundable); up to two entries may be submitted under this fee.

Entries for the exhibition will be selected from two 35mm slides or digital images of completed work.
