Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: November 2015 – Fall 2016
Zeca Madeiros is expanding his support of art quilts from the Patchwork Design Show in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo to venues catering to art collectors. Interest in fiber arts is blossoming in South America, and we have an opportunity to be at the forefront. He is arranging opportunities for display and sales in a number of Brazilian cities and in Argentina and Chile.
Zeca is looking for approximately 30 quilts from 20 quilters. Zeca hopes that most submitted quilts will be for sale. Artists should set the price on entries based on what you want to receive, and he believes that quilts with artist prices between $1000 and $4000 have the best chance of selling. Keep in mind when setting the price for your work that this is a developing market.
Quilts will be gone from November 2015 to Fall 2016 to accommodate the new venues. Shipping fees to Brazil will be $55 per quilt. All other shipping is paid by Patchwork Design. As per previous shows, one quilter will be chosen to attend the Patchwork Design Show in 2017. Zeca will choose quilts from those submitted, and may also ask people from previous shows to send their quilts again.
There are no size or age limits on the quilts. Please, no frames or 3-D because of shipping issues. Quilts may be lovingly folded during their return shipping.
Entries are due by September 14, quilts at the November meeting.
Must be a CQA member to enter.
Deadline: September 14, 2015
