Welcome

Welcome to the Contemporary Quilt Art Association’s “Opportunities” site.  This site provides a means for CQA members to share information about upcoming exhibition opportunities.  Guests are welcome (here and in person).   If you’re visiting the Seattle area, we hope that you will join us at one of our meetings.

The Contemporary QuiltArt Association, a 50l (c)(3) non-profit arts organization run entirely by volunteers, is a Washington state group formed in the fall of 1986. We are a diverse group of artists, teachers, writers, and collectors living throughout Washington, and we view quilts as an exciting, emerging medium of expression and a viable contemporary art form.

To find out more about our organization, please visit our website or our official blog.

“Spun,” NEST Arts Factory

Bridgeport, CT:   October 14 – November 4, 2017

We’re looking for 2D and 3D artwork up to 60″ square that push the boundary of fiber art.  Fiber art refers to fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber and other components, such as fabric or yarn. It focuses on the materials and on the manual labour on the part of the artist as part of the works’ significance, and prioritizes aesthetic value over utility.

Deadline:  September 15, 2017
