Dusk to Dawn (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
IQF: Houston, Texas

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. Sleep can bring powerful dreams of flight or night terrors. What does the night mean to you? Challenge yourself to represent an aspect of the evening through representational or abstract fiber art.


** closed for jurying. artists will be notified by march 5

Metamorphosis (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
IQF: Houston, Texas

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 (SAQA Global - All members) More Info
Texas Quilt Museum

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. Artists are encouraged to explore and illustrate the seasons of their lives or the changes reflected in the seasons of the world in which they live.

Forced to Flee (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts

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.

3D Expression (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
International Quilt Festival Houston (2019)

This exhibit will feature contemporary 3D artworks exclusively.  Be creative in showing how textile art can expand both into the third dimension and in the future. The work may be practical, infused with meaning, or decorative, but it must meet SAQA's definition of an art quilt.
