Call for Entries
 
Fiber Fusions - A Juried Quilt Exhibition 2019
 
Entry Deadline: July 9th, 2019
 

The theme of this year’s juried quilt exhibition is Fiber Fusions. 

The Whistler House Museum of Art welcomes contemporary quilts of all kinds, colors, and subject matter under this theme, allowing all fiber artists to showcase their strongest work.  As with all art; composition, color, and design are important towards the creation of a finished work of art.  How fiber and materials fuse together, integrating creative skills and imagination, presents the artistic expression of the individual artist. We urge quilters to include descriptions of handmade aspects of their work or any unique techniques used on the quilts under the “Material/Technique Used” section of the entry form.

Entry Fees: The entrance fee is $30 for up to three quilts. New Members: If you are not a member of the Whistler House Museum of Art, you may send a check for $55. The fee will include a $40 artist membership and a reduced entry fee of $15. Please note that it is not required for quilters to be members, but membership includes the ability to submit work to our members exhibitions, visit the historic home, attend special events, and receive a greater portion of the profit when works are sold. 

Jurors:

Wen Redmond: Wen Redmond is an award-winning fiber artist whose work embraces several mediums, including digital

processes, surface design, and collage. Her work and articles have been published in numerous books and magazines,

including her new book, Wen Redmond’s Digital Fiber Art.  Redmond will also conduct a quilting workshop featuring mixed

media transfer in conjunction with the exhibition – details on the class are forthcoming.

Janice Jones: Janice Jones’s work has been published in the Quilters Newsletter magazine. She has won numerous awards

in fine art exhibitions and textile art shows, including “Best in Show”.  She feels that working with textiles allows her to push

boundaries and create a story that conveys a sense of tactile warmth and character.  By adding texture, depth, and movement

to her work, she draws the viewer in and invites them to touch and feel the energy of her quilts.  She uses color to create

drama and dimension, using fibers, embellishments, and hand painted elements for added interest.
