The works in a Quilt National exhibit display a reverence for the lessons taught by the makers of the heritage quilts. Many of the works hold fast to the traditional methods of piecing and patching. At the same time, however, the Quilt National artist is intrigued by the challenge of expanding the boundaries of traditional quiltmaking by utilizing the newest materials and technologies. These innovative works generate strong emotional responses in the viewer while at the same time fulfilling the creative need of the artist to make a totally individual statement.
Quilt National ’15, the nineteenth international juried competition for new, innovative quilts will be on display May 23 - September 7, 2015 at The Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio (USA).
Jurors will be Rosalie Dace (Durban, South Africa), Ann Johnston (Lake Oswego, OR) and Judy Schwender (Paducah, KY).
The work submitted must possess the basic structural characteristics of a quilt; be an original design of the entrant; have been completed after September 2012; measure no more than 100 inches or 254 cm. in either direction.
Over $6000 in prizes will be awarded.
ENTRY DEADLINE: 12 September 2014.
Work selected for the exhibition will tour through 2017 and will be published in a full-color catalog.
Entry information and rules will be available on this site in March 2014.
