Art Quilts XVIII: ARTrageous Art Quilts
Chandler Center for the Arts

Chandler, AZ
November 1, 2013 – January 18, 2014

A Call to Artists for original works of textile Art Quilts that step outside of the box in some context, reflecting a twist on the traditional, an interesting technique that is unique to your work, or simply something that is so extremely bold, that your colleagues will exclaim, “what!?!” The challenge is to move beyond any traditional style, context or subject that you have relied on in the past, or to take your traditional context and mix it up in a way that is beyond being bold.

Outrageous: exceeding the limits of what is usual.

This year’s theme encourages you to explore beyond the scope of the normal.

The exhibition is produced by the Chandler Center for the Arts and is presented by the Chandler Cultural Foundation and the Chandler Arts Commission. The Chandler Center for the Arts Art Quilts exhibition has grown from a local and regional quilt show to a respected vehicle for contemporary works. The exhibition draws entries from around the United States and Canada and allows thousands of visitors each year to experience quilting as an art form.

Juror: Arizona artist Laurie Fagen

Juror’s Exhibition Theme: ARTrageous Art Quilts

Using any of the various techniques and materials of the Art Quilt medium, create a work to express a new twist on your collective body of work. The theme you choose may be conceptual, visual, or personal.

Entry Fee: $15 fee for up to 3 works.
