Call for Art Quilts on the Theme of ‘Ancient’

Deadline: January 11

The Emerald Art Center in Springfield OR announces their 2nd Annual Emerald Art Quilt Exhibition 2020, a contemporary fiber arts show interpreting the concept of ANCIENT.

Artists are challenged to create an art quilt where the canvas is material, the sewing machine is the paint brush and threads become the paint. Work can be representational or abstract.

Recall the cracked and yellowed photos of an age when solemn ancestors posed in their Sunday best, leathery skin and wisdom filled eyes looking straight at the camera.  Cultures are maintained through ancient legends, and discoveries are made indicating lost civilizations.  Expand your common concept of Ancient and use your inspiration to create a meaningful and striking work of art for this show.

Details and an online application can be found here.
