Call for Entry Details• Lowell, Massachusetts
Deadline: July 9, 2019
The Whistler House Museum of Art welcomes contemporary quilts of all kinds, colors, and subject matter under this theme, allowing all fiber artists to showcase their strongest work. As with all art; composition, color, and design are important towards the creation of a finished work of art. How fiber and materials fuse together, integrating creative skills and imagination, presents the artistic expression of the individual artist. We urge quilters to include descriptions of handmade aspects of their work or any unique techniques used on the quilts under the “Material/Technique Used” section of the entry form.
Entry Fees: The entrance fee is $30 for up to three quilts.
Wen Redmond: Wen Redmond is an award-winning fiber artist whose work embraces several mediums, including digital processes, surface design, and collage. Her work and articles have been published in numerous books and magazines, including her new book, Wen Redmond’s Digital Fiber Art. Redmond will also conduct a quilting workshop featuring mixed media transfer in conjunction with the exhibition – details on the class are forthcoming.
Janice Jones: Janice Jones’s work has been published in the Quilters Newsletter magazine. She has won numerous awards in fine art exhibitions and textile art shows, including “Best in Show”. She feels that working with textiles allows her to push boundaries and create a story that conveys a sense of tactile warmth and character. By adding texture, depth, and movement to her work, she draws the viewer in and invites them to touch and feel the energy of her quilts. She uses color to create drama and dimension, using fibers, embellishments, and hand painted elements for added interest.
