17th The Artist as Quiltmaker
Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Quilts

Firelands Association for the Visual Arts
Oberlin, Ohio
May 15 – July 31, 2016

The Firelands Association for the Visual Arts is an independent not-for-profit organization dedicated to enhancing public appreciation of and participation in the visual arts through exhibitions and related educational and community activities. FAVA presents a full season of invitational exhibits, regional and national juried shows, an annual members’ show, and art classes for adults and children.

The Artist as Quiltmaker is the second-longest-running art quilt exhibition in the world. FAVA deliberately chooses not to define ‘quilt,’ thereby encouraging both established and emerging artists to submit innovative artwork, pushing boundaries and challenging expectations, whether they use traditional or non-traditional techniques or materials.

◦ Artists living in the U.S. or Canada may submit up to three entries.
◦ Innovative two- and three-dimensional quilts are invited.
◦ Work must be completed after December 2013.
◦ Collaborative works are invited. Artists submitting both collaborative and individual works must apply separately.
◦ Artwork must be an original design/concept and not created in a class or workshop. Student work is accepted if created outside the classroom and without an instructor’s guidance.
◦ Maximum height or width is 108”.

Mark Newport, Artist-in-Residence and Head of Fiber at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
