The Ties That Bind – Call For Artists
Gallery One Visual Art Center announces a call for artists for their fifth national juried exhibition titled The Ties that Bind. Artist quilts will be juried by Joey Veltkamp for inclusion in a month-long exhibition, March of 2019 in the main gallery of Gallery One in downtown Ellensburg, WA.
Deadline: 27 Jan 2019
For the purpose of The Ties That Bind, Gallery One defines an Art Quilt as an original exploration of a concept or idea rather than the handing down of a pattern. Art quilts experiment with textile manipulation, color, texture, and/or diversity of materials. An Art Quilt often pushes quilt world boundaries but should consist predominately of fiber or a fiber-like material with two or more layers which are held together with stitches, piercing or other methods of joining.
This exhibit is open to all artists 18 years and older residing in the USA. Accepted entries must be identical to submitted images or the work will not be exhibited. Acceptance implies the use of your images and your name in any printed or online publicity. All work must have been completed within the last three years, originals only (no reproductions). Quilts cannot be completed under the direction of an instructor or as a matriculated student.
To select artists in the exhibit, Gallery One provides opportunities for lectures, workshops, and/or special events to accompany the exhibition. $800 in awards will be distributed at the juror’s discretion. A slideshow of accepted works will be posted on the website following selection by the juror.
