Art Quilts XIV: Significant Stitching will create a retrospective of today’s art-quilting world with all of its diversity. This year’s theme encourages you to explore what makes your work significant. Is it the statement your piece makes? Is it quilting lines made meaningful by placement? Surface design which speaks to the soul? Amazing quilting or appliqué? Submit your most significant work to this annual exhibition of contemporary artworks, once again expected to offer one of the finest collections of art quilts on display in the Southwest.

Art Quilts has grown from a local and regional quilt show to a respected vehicle for contemporary works. The exhibition draws entries from around the world and allows thousands of visitors each year to experience quilting as an art form.

The exhibition is produced and juried by Diane Howell and is presented by the Chandler Center for the Arts. It is overseen and installed by the City of Chandler's visual arts staff, housed at Vision Gallery in downtown Chandler.

Quilt artists who want to share their art with a broad-based arts audience are invited to enter. Two or more people may have worked on the pieces. The works must not have been previously displayed at the Chandler Center for the Arts or other downtown Chandler venue. Works should have been completed within the last three years. Wearable art and works less than 10" wide will not be accepted.

There is a non-refundable fee of $25 to enter up to 3 works. No entries will be considered without payment of this fee.

For each $25 fee, you may submit up to 3 works on slides, a CD or via email. There is NO form, but entries MUST be accompanied by information outlined on website.
