Textile Expressionism (SAQA Virtual Gallery) - Call for Entry

Virtual Call
Call for Entry Deadline

Textile Expressionism

Virtual Gallery of selected pieces will be available for viewing on July 1!

This exhibition is an invitation to artists to freely express their feelings, both positive and negative, through textiles.  Artists are encouraged to push boundaries to fully express themselves and engage with expressive techniques which might include (but which are not required) mark-making, collage, surface design, unique materials and/or experimental and improvisational media.   

The exhibition will serve as a cathartic experience for the artists and create an emotive experience for the viewers.


  • Open to all SAQA members
  • No entry fee (up to 3 entries)
  • No size 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.

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