Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie
A juried exhibit of contemporary quilt art
Carnegie Center for Art & History

New Albany, IN
January 6 - March 3, 2012

For the ninth year, the Carnegie Center for Art & History invites artists to submit entries for Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie, an exhibition exploring the world of contemporary art quilts. This annual, juried exhibit draws works of art by artists across the United States and celebrates innovation and creative thought in the increasingly popular medium of art quilts.

Eligibility: Form, Not Function is open to artists living in the United States. All works must be quilted (two or more distinct layers held together with stitches); other techniques and mediums may be incorporated. Works must be ready to hang on the wall, including the hanging rod. Works must be original and completed since January 1, 2008. There is no minimum or maximum size. (Gallery walls are 12 feet high. Works cannot be suspended from the ceiling.) Three-dimensional works (including those mounted on stretchers) are eligible, but must be ready to exhibit on the floor, on a pedestal or include mounting hardware for wall display.

The Carnegie Center is pleased to have Kate Lenkowsky, Marti Plager, and Jennifer Sargent as jurors for the 2012 Form, Not Function exhibition. In addition to selecting the works for the exhibit, they will also select some of the exhibition awards on the opening day of the exhibition.

Cash Awards: $1,000 Best of Show, $300 Award of Excellence presented by River City Fiber Artists, $200 Award of Excellence presented by the Louisville Area Fiber and Textile Artists, $100 Award for Political and Social Commentary, $100 Award to the quilt that best interprets and was inspired by nature, and $50 Visitors’Choice Award, plus additional cash Awards of Merit.

Entry Fee: $30.00 for three works; $10.00 for each additional work.
