Ozquilt Network Inc

Craft ACT Craft and Design Centre
Canberra City
31 October to 14 December 2013

To align with the centenary of Canberra celebrations in 2013, Art Quilt Australia has selected the theme of people, place and nation. Australia is a nation of diverse peoples, landscapes, plants, animals and climate, and Canberra is the place where all Australians and the nation are represented. This theme offers artists the opportunity of a wide range of responses and interpretations.

Art Quilt Australia: people, place and nation will be exhibited at Craft ACT Craft and Design Centre from 31 October to 14 December 2013.

The curator, Valerie Kirk, Head of Textiles at the Australian National University will select works. She will consider the design of the piece in relation to the theme; formal aspects of design such as composition, colour, texture and structure; choice of fabrics; and making and construction. Acceptance will be given on the basis of digital image submission.

Entry is open to all Australian artists.
