OPEN TO SAQA MEMBERS ONLY
• Texas Quilt Museum
Deadline: May 31, 2018
Our lives are measured in seasons. Not just the familiar quarterly divisions of a year: spring, summer, fall and winter, but with each new day we move among a variety of seasons. Seasons are temporary markers of the passing of time, helping us transition naturally through the changes of our lives. Transitions in our personal lives can be seen through the seasons represented by age, health, attitude, status, hopes, dreams, or priorities.
Other less personal seasonal changes are reflected in the world around us: weather, daylight, rainfall, temperature, climate, holidays, harvest, migration, sports, or hunting. Some seasons have no set time of arrival; others are regular as the ticking of a clock. Some seasons we await with excitement or anticipation; others we fear or wish to slow their inevitable arrival.
Artists are encouraged to explore and illustrate the seasons of their lives or the changes reflected in the seasons of the world in which they live.
