Deadline: March 9, 2011 (ONLINE)

Liturgical Works [Special Exhibit]
2011 Sacred Threads Exhibition

Church of the Epiphany
Herndon, VA
June 22 - July 4, 2011

The 2011 Sacred Threads Exhibition will be held at the Church of the Epiphany in Herndon, VA. This is an Anglican church which welcomes Sacred Threads and is pleased to be the host venue. Church of the Epiphany invites artists to submit liturgical works to be juried into a special exhibit to be hung in the Sanctuary during the Sacred Threads exhibit. These works may be for sale. Church of the Epiphany is interested in purchasing pieces for permanent installation.

The Liturgical Call for Entries is open to all artists from the United States and Canada.

Quilts submitted should have a Christian theme and enhance a sacred worship environment.

Quilts must be an original design. Quilt dimensions must be 30" in height and between "18-60" wide. Each quilt must have a 4" hanging sleeve and an identifying label on the back of the quilt.

Entry Process
The jurying process will be done from digital images only. Entrants should submit two images per entry (one overall view and one detail view). All images must be of publication quality.

Each entry must also include an artist's statement of no more than 100 words describing the story or the inspiration behind the quilt. Entries must be received no later than March 9, 2011. The number of works included in the liturgical special exhibit will depend on the number of entries submitted and the space available.

Entry Fee
There is no fee to enter the special exhibit. Each artist may submit one piece.

If your piece is for sale and the Church of the Epiphany wishes to purchase your piece, arrangements for payment will be made privately between parties. Sacred Threads will not require a commission fee.
