12th Juried Exhibition of Innovative Quilts
The Professional Art Quilters Alliance-South (PAQA-South)

Page-Walker Arts & History Center
Cary, NC
April 22 – June 21, 2015


Vacations with family, get-togethers with friends, and high school reunions are occasions when we indulge in sharing stories of our past. Vintage cars and old-fashioned clothes can remind us of events from way back when. Stumbling over memorabilia in the attic may evoke nostalgic feelings. Reading a poem or novel could trigger musings of joyful moments. Old photo albums, a favorite song, or the smell of a certain fragrance might even bring us back to a special place in time. We invite you to share memories of long ago or the not-so-distant past. Reminisce a little, then share with us your story in art quilt form.


Innovative and original works only. No kits or quilts made in a workshop with the aid of an instructor. Quilts must be multi-layered and joined by stitching. All entries must hang on the wall and not exceed 60 inches in width or height. Free standing 3-D pieces will not be accepted. Quilts may not contain images or text that are protected by copyright unless the artist has obtained written permission by the time of submission. Proof of copyright permissions may be requested by the exhibit committee.

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). Please note, in the event this exhibit travels, rigid mounted quilts or those with excessive depth may be restricted from traveling. For works consisting of multiple unconnected units (e.g., diptychs or triptychs), each unit will be considered a separate entry.

Preliminary acceptance will be granted based on the acceptance of digital images. Final acceptance will be granted upon the receipt and examination of the quilt. We reserve the right to eliminate entries that do not fit the specified guidelines and omit accepted quilts from the exhibition that do not contain the same qualities as the submitted images. The exhibition committee’s decision is final.


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

Submission process opens January 1, 2015 and ends at midnight CDT on February 20, 2015

Entry Fee: $25 for PAQA-South members, $35 for nonmembers, for up to three quilts. Online entries pay using PayPal.
