Seams Unusual: Contemporary Art Quilts by New Mexico Fiber Artists

Deadline: May 9, 2008 (RECEIVE)

Seams Unusual
An Exhibition of Contemporary Art Quilts by New Mexico Fiber Artists
Art Center at Fuller Lodge
Los Alamos, New Mexico
June 20, 2008 – July 26, 2008

All work must meet the definition of an Art Quilt: a contemporary artwork exploring and expressing aesthetic concerns common to the whole range of visual arts, which retains, through materials or technique, a clear relationship to the folk art quilt from which it descends.

In addition, only original artwork, conceived and created by the entrant(s) will be considered; no patterns, kits, copies, or works that are the result of a class or workshop are allowed. If multiple artists were involved with the creation of the artwork, all artists must be listed as entrants.

Non-refundable entry fee is $30 for up to three (3) entries. Please make checks payable to Patricia Gould.

Selection of the work to be shown will be made by Patricia Gould and Katy Korkos, co-
representatives for SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Association). Ms. Gould and Ms. Korkos are New Mexican fiber artists who have curated exhibitions and have numerous awards at both the national and international level.

Please submit two digital images of your work— one full, one detail of each on a CD. Save your images at 300 dpi, 4" X 6", as TIFFs or JPEGs, at the highest quality, non-compressed. Be sure to label your images with the number of your entry, your last name, and the title; for example, 01gouldmoonrise and 01gouldmoonrise_detail.

No CDs will be returned. Please include a 4" X 6" print of the entire quilt for each entry.
