The Artist as Quiltmaker XV
15th Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Quilts

Firelands Association for the Visual Arts
New Union Center for the Art
Oberlin, OH
May 13 – July 29, 2012

Artists living in the U.S. or Canada may submit up to three entries. Artwork must be an original design and not created in a classroom or workshop setting. Artwork must be ready to exhibit, completed after December 2008, and not previously exhibited at FAVA. Maximum height or width is 108”. Innovative two- and three-dimensional quilts are invited.

• $30 Online entry (payment by Visa, Mastercard, or Paypal)
• $35 Mailed entry (check payable to FAVA)

FAVA's standard practice differs from other exhibitions where jurors view only digital images or slides. The AQM XV juror will view submitted works in two blind rounds. (Artists' names are concealed.)

Round 1 Initial jury from digital images - Notification by email or telephone
Round 2 Final object jury from the actual quilts

Work significantly differing from that represented in the digital image will be returned after the final object jury date.

Juror: Jean Druesedow, Director Kent State University Museum

Awards: Cash prizes
