Less than 10 members have reserved spots as of the February 18 meeting deadline, requiring this terrific opportunity that was scheduled for May 6-7, 2017 to be cancelled. Thanks to Susan S. and Kathy S. for all their hard work to schedule this class.
These two documents Artist Information Form and Submission and Entry Guidelines_REVISED are required for the upcoming Mesa County Central Library Exhibit AQuA is having with the Rocky Mountain Collage Society. Read the attachments for all the details on this collaborative show that will hang March 16-May 18,2017.
Members can submit 1) a piece that is hung by a sleeve and slat, or 2) a piece that is framed. In order for a framed piece to hang correctly with the Library’s hanging system,we had to revise the hanging instructions . Revision 2/13: The Library will not accept any saw-tooth hangers. And the wire on the back of your framed piece needs to be exactly 1-12″ from the top of the frame. If it is any closer to the top, the wire will be exposed and will not complement your piece. Also, the hooks used to attach the wire need to be fairly close to the top edge of the frame, between 1-1/2″ and 2.” If they are installed lower, then your piece will hang forward from the wall quite a bit.
Many pieced were submitted at the February 18 general meeting turn-in date. If you have any questions regarding this soon-to-be-displayed show, please call or email Jan Rickman.
If you will check the website under “About AquA” you will find an article tited Twenty Years of AQuA. Researched by Mary Grande, Jean Roesler, Susan Van Voorhees, and Rita Faussone. New members may particularly enjoy the time line and how the group came to be.
Horizons is the selected theme for the Mancuso 2017 exhibit for the Quiltfest Oasis in Palm Springs and the Pacific International Quilt Festival (PIQF) in Santa Clara, CA. The description is as follows:
The Art Quilt Association brings you their perception of “Horizons.” Literally, it is the line at the farthest place one can see where the sky seems to touch the earth. Figuratively, it is the fullest range of one’s knowledge, experience or interest. In both senses it is a boundary in space and time beyond which events cannot affect the observer.
The tentative turn-in date is June or July 2017. All the size requirements (minimum 96″ total sides) and criteria are the same as last year Absolutely Artful show so review those posted details until the 2017 submission form is available. Contact Jan Warren or Terry Lee with questions.
