Dusk to Dawn    Call for Entry Deadline - January 31, 2018

When the sun dips below the horizon, the world changes: the trees are lit by the silvery light of the moon, and warm lamps glow in a child's room as they listen to a bedtime story. Owls and bats take to the sky for their evening meals, while other animals curl up safely in their dens.
Premieres in 2018 at IQF Houston


Forced to Flee     Call for Entry Deadline - October 31, 2018

Throughout history people have been forced to flee from their homes for their own safety and survival due to war, oppression, natural disasters, and atrocious human rights violations. The refugee crisis has imposed severe impacts on the social, economic, and political structures of host countries, especially poor and developing countries.
Premieres in May 2019 at the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts 


Guns: Loaded Conversations    Currently being juried

An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of gun violence. If we are to find ways to reduce injury and death from gun violence, we must find a way to bridge this divide and talk openly and honestly about potential solutions while at the same time respecting legitimate uses for firearms.
Premieres in April 2018 at San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles


Metamorphosis    Call for Entry Deadline - February 28, 2018

Metamorphosis generates transformative change in shape, nature or structure. Just as animals physically develop and change from birth to maturity, concepts, ideas and even the landscape of the earth itself progress through many stages. Change may be positive, negative, frightening or enlightening. Consider physical changes, philosophical changes or personal life changes and the inevitability of decay as a process of change. Realistic, representational, and abstract work will be considered.

Season After Season    Call for Entry Deadline - May 31, 2018

Our lives are measured in seasons. Not just the familiar quarterly divisions of a year: spring, summer, fall and winter, but with each new day we move among a variety of seasons. Seasons are temporary markers of the passing of time, helping us transition naturally through the changes of our lives. Transitions in our personal lives can be seen through the seasons represented by age, health, attitude, status, hopes, dreams, or priorities.
Premieres in January 2019 at Texas Quilt Museum, La Grange, Texas
