Opposites Attract (SAQA Global - ALL members)   •   Australasian Quilt Convention
Deadline:  August 31, 2019

Logo

Opposing forces shape our reality in ways which are both readily apparent as well as hidden. Artwork included in this exhibit will explore contradicting, clashing, conflicting or incompatible forces, such as the irresistible force versus the immovable object, night versus day, and other “opposites.” The subject(s) can be as simple or complex as the artist wishes to examine, but the focus of the piece will showcase the interplay of two contradictory components.

Brisbane Stitches & Craft Show – June 5 to 8, 2020
