“Layered Voices,” International Quilt Study Center & Museum, SAQA Exhibition

Lincoln, NE:    January 2017 – December 2019

Layers are everywhere. They become apparent when we plumb the earth’s surface, make archeological digs to discover the history of civilizations, explore human anatomy, dress for the weather, dig in freshly fallen snow, and count rings in the stump of a tree. Layers are abstract, too. We find them in language when we ponder the hidden meanings in novels, poems, conversations, and puns.  Entrants are encouraged to interpret the use and concept of layering in their work.

Deadline:  September 30, 2016
