Metaphors on Aging

Deadline: January 31, 2013 (ONLINE)

Studio Art Quilt Associates

Festival of Quilts

Exhibition: August 15 - 18, 2013

Exhibit Concept

There are a rare few of us who have not been affected in some way by the changes that occur with aging, be it ourselves, or the aging of our parents, loved ones or even our children. Here you have the opportunity to explore any of these passages that have touched your own life. Subjects can include aging, illness, death, the growth of our children, or the passage of time in general. This exhibit will showcase 30-35 art quilts. Art quilts may be up to 36" wide and 48" high. Due to limited space and shipping costs, there will be no three dimensional works. Artwork will debut at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham UK. Artwork may be edited to fit additional venues yet to be selected, depending on available display space.
