Conversations in Mad Matters (SAQA Virtual Gallery) - Call for Entry

Virtual Call
Call for Entry Deadline


Virtual Gallery of selected pieces available for viewing August 1!

What might be normal for some, may be experienced very differently by others with various mental health issues. What is it like to live with a mental health issue? How does one cope? How has medicine, our cultures and politics reacted to and changed over time to neurodiversity? This exhibition asks artists to make works related to neurodiversity that will help visually relate experiences and create conversations around mental health issues. Curated by Brandon Wulff



  • Open to all SAQA members
  • No entry fee (up to 3 entries per artist)
  • No size or date restrictions

Because this is a virtual exhibition, it is critical that submitted images be of the best possible quality: in focus, with clear details, and following SAQA's digital image requirements. Please read Virtual Gallery Submission Guidelines for more details. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Common image errors include:

  • Images that are out of focus or too small, 
  • Cropping images too closely on the full-view image. All edges of the artwork must be visible along with a small amount of contrasting background.
  • Distracting elements in the image background - we don't want to see design walls, rugs, your studio, hanging clips, hands, pins, etc. 

Don't miss this! We have prepared a handy resource of Tips for Successful Art Quilt Photography.

About the Curator

HeadshotI'm Brandon Wulff, an artist driven by experimentation in quilting. Collaborating with designers, my unique pieces grace extraordinary homes. Highlights include the Marilyn Denis Show, Canadian Quilter Magazine features, and founding the Individual Members Coalition of the Modern Quilt Guild in 2020. My work, recognized in exhibitions and publications like Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Canadian House and Home Magazine, embraces a bold, experimental style. From "The R word and the S word" to "Visibly Mended," my quilts continue to captivate and push boundaries in the contemporary art scene.
