Call for Submissions
Design a Block for the Spun Community Quilt

Denver Art Museum
Denver, Colarado
April 22, 2013 – September 22, 2013

Design a 2-feet-wide-by-3-feet-tall fabric or textile block for our larger-than-life sized community quilt in the Hamilton Building atrium. The Spun Community Quilt will be on view in the Hamilton Building's El Pomar Grand Atrium as part of the DAM’s Spun: Adventures in Textiles campus-wide exhibition this summer.

Get creative! Express yourself! Tell your personal or collective story using artwork, mementos, knickknacks, and other items—almost anything you can attach to a fabric ground. Blocks can be individual creations or collaborative projects.

Your block can include photographs, autographs, drawings, painted pieces, embroidery, textile art, small objects, photo film negatives, or whatever you can attach to a 2-by-3 vertical fabric ground—but you will need to limit the weight of the piece to 1.5 pounds or less, and not all materials will be accepted. No plants, liquids, living, hazardous, or unsafe materials are allowed. Your block must include 2 side-by-side reinforced holes at each corner in order to attach it to the Spun Community Quilt.

Please note: submissions will not be returned. Due to limited space not all submissions will be included.

Submissions will be accepted on July 1 and August 12, 10 am–4 pm. Submit the pre-registration form by 3 pm the day before drop-off.

On August 12, the drop-off is happening at the Denver Art Museum’s administrative offices at 414 14th St (not 14th Avenue). Contact Jenna Madison at 30055 from the lobby to enter.

Suspended in Green

Studio Gabi Green

You are invited to participate in ‘Suspended in Green’. Now in its third and final year, the ‘Suspended’ exhibitions seek to explore the world of jewelry as it is NOW. This is a call out for jewelry that explores GREEN, in all its facets.

Green: it's just a color, yet it can also stand for so much more. It’s the color of money, of envy and of inexperience. It can stand for ethical products, the environment, symbolize fertility and nature. We talk about green shamrocks for luck, the green eyed monster, and green fingers. You can give someone the green light, be a greenhorn or be part of the green revolution.

‘Suspended in Green’ seeks out jewelry which explores these themes and ideas, through precious and non-precious materials. The result will be a juxtaposition of jewelers, themes and styles, all suspended from the gallery’s ceiling, which will invite the viewer to engage and interact with the work.

This year we are adding an additional element to the suspended show. Each selected artist will show one Gallery/Museum piece, which can be sold for any price -
as well as a series (of between 3 and 10) ‘Shop’ pieces, which must have a retail price of €40 each. These ‘Shop’ pieces MUST be directly related to the Gallery/Museum piece submitted.

‘Net Curtains’ Site Specific Installation

Deadline: July 24, 2013 (EMAIL)

‘Net Curtains’
Site Specific Installation

Thelma Hulbert Gallery
Honiton, Devon
4th and 5th of September 2013

The Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Devon is looking for women to be part of an exciting installation project taking part in September.

Artist Andrea Stokes has been invited to create an installation at the gallery and the gallery is looking for enthusiastic women to help out.

‘Net Curtains’ is a site specific project which will bring together local women in the creation of an ambitious art installation that inhabits the whole of the Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Honiton, Devon. The gallery is a late Georgian town house formerly the home and studio of artist Thelma Hulbert.

Artist Andrea Stokes has been invited to create an installation at the gallery as part of ‘intoLACE’, an exhibition bringing together artists whose work references lace and runs from 14th September – 2nd November 2013 in partnership with Devon Guild of Craftsmen. The installation will be a drawing that appears to fill the whole building and engages with the house and its histories, incorporating designs from traditional Honiton lace – a craft the town is renowned for since the 17th century.

The installation will cover the inside of every window in the gallery and will be visible from inside and out. The drawing will have the delicate quality of lace and will create the illusion of ‘net curtains’ in all the windows of the house with one continuous line/thread that travels and weaves over the entire space.

A team of 24 local women will transfer the design onto the windows during a two-day event. Each participant will be paid £250 for taking part. All women over 18 are welcome to apply, priority will be given to women who live in the East Devon region. No prior experience or artistic skills required.

The dates for the project are 4th and 5th of September 2013. To take part you must be available on both of these days and be happy to be photographed during the event. Selection will be by application form and short informal interviews. The deadline for applications is 12pm on Wednesday 24th July and interviews will take place on Monday 29th July.
