Page-Walker Arts & History Center
Cary, NC
April 23 - June 22, 2014

The Professional Art Quilters Alliance-South (PAQA-South) announces its annual juried exhibition of innovative quilts.

Playful humor, fanciful ideas or adornments, light & carefree notions, quaint or comical qualities; whimsy captures a thoughtful and creative smile, and shares it with the world. We invite you to share your interpretation of whimsy in quiltart form.

Innovative and original works only. No kits or quilts made in a workshop with the aid of an instructor.

Quilt must be multi-layered and joined by stitching. Dimension in any one direction must not exceed 60 inches.

Accepted works may be mounted on stretcher bars or other rigid support as long as the supporting structure is hidden behind the quilt (e.g., gallery wrap or canvas mounts).

Please note, in the event this exhibit travels rigid mounted quilts or those with excessive depth may be restricted from traveling.

Only quilts created after December 31, 2011, that have not been previously exhibited in a PAQA-South show, are eligible.

Bryan Ellis, a member of the Design faculty at both the University of North Carolina - Greensboro and Wake Forest University Art Departments.

Nancy Cook, an art quilter who’s work is in numerous private and public collections throughout the USA. She has exhibited her work on four continents and across the United States, with over a dozen solo and featured artist exhibitions.

Cash awards for excellence in design include: 2 Juror’s Choice and 1 Gallery Choice awards.

Entry Fee
Entry Fee: $20 for PAQA-South members, $30 for nonmembers, for up to three quilts. Payments will be made using PayPal.
