February is the Art Center’s annual Members Exhibition. According to their website, with 300 works it has the claim to fame of being their largest exhibition, but it also reflects the geographic and technical diversity of our membership. Medium ranges from collage to clay to of course FIBER.
Four years ago the Art Center incorporated People’s Choice Awards into the Members Exhibition which our esteemed member Susan Strickland won in 2016. Votes are collected and cash prizes are awarded to best of show, first, second, and third place winners. See the Art Center website for more details including the January turn in dates. This is another opportunity to share our talents with the community.
See the Upcoming Workshop website section for the course synopsis for this “Bring Out our Talent” workshop on May 6-7, 2017.

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.
