• Quilt Festival Houston 2021
Deadline: January 31, 2021
Opens at Quilt Festival Houston 2021
In today's fractured, divisive world, connections - both intentional and accidental - are more important than ever. We are bound by love, rituals, family and faith. We are also connected to our past, our community - near and far, and to nature. To be connected is to find commonalities with others.
Artists are encouraged to illustrate connections through their artwork. Only 2D work that can hang from pole and drape systems with no distortion is eligible.
Wall Hung Only
Minimum/Maximum range of sizes: Height 30"-60" x Width 24"-60"
As a narrative artist and documentarian, Ellen M. Blalock started quilting over twenty years ago to symbolically replace stolen family quilts. Her current series, “Not Crazy,” focuses on trauma and mental illness in the African American community.
Working in several mediums, including photography, film, quilting, and drawing, Blalock’s main goal is to tell the stories of people who have been marginalized. She is particularly interested in the African diaspora and female identity and power.
