The art quilt movement has been growing for more than 50 years, and SAQA has decided to commemorate this history in a new book and series of exhibitions. “Art Quilt Retrospective: 50 Years of Innovation” will chronicle the movement decade by decade, from 1960 to today!
We hope that you will participate in this project by submitting your best work in each appropriate decade. We require high-resolution digital images to be submitted (at least 2100 pixels on the longest side). These should be print-quality images of the overall quilt only, no detail images. A maximum of six images, one per decade, may be submitted per artist.
Update August 20, 2016: If you are submitting pieces from the earlier decades, slides may be mailed in lieu of digital images.
THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE
You must submit your entry by September 15 in order to be considered for the publication. However, we will accept additional entries after the deadline as part of an ongoing call for submissions which will help create a valuable online resource database of art quilting history.
This call for submissions is open to anyone (you do not need to be a current SAQA member). We look forward to seeing your work!
