   OPEN TO SAQA MEMBERS ONLY


Opposites Attract (SAQA Global - ALL members)   •   Quilt Festival Chicago 2020
Deadline:  August 31, 2019

Opposing forces shape our reality in ways which are both readily apparent as well as hidden. Artwork included in this exhibit will explore a contradiction or an affinity, Yin and Yang, the irresistible force versus the immovable object 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.

Artists are challenged to resolve opposing ideas or items as they illustrate with their art, in a figurative or abstract manner, a dichotomy of their choosing.  

 

Premiere Location

Quilt Festival Chicago, Spring 2020
