Fissures -  Emerald Art Center  •   Springfield, Oregon
Deadline:  January 8, 2019


Emerald Art Center presents an exhibition of contemporary Art Quilts. Open to all Art Quilt Artists in the United States and Canada


A fissure is simply a crack, an opening, a separation, a split.  Other interpretations include vent, opening, breach, or cleft:  A breach in the space/time continuum, or a black hole.  A long narrow opening in rock. A volcanic fissure might spew lava, steam or smoke.

A biological fissure may be a split or break in tissue. Our relationships with others may develop fissures, miscommunications, a lack of togetherness.

Here in Oregon, some streams pour out of fissures, or disappear into fissures, only to reappear farther down the hillside.  Artists are encouraged to consider and explore the varieties of meaning, image and experience and follow where that particular fissure takes you.
