“THE STATE OF WA(TER),” Pacific Northwest Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum

La Conner, WA:    Dates TBD

Although nearly 5,000 square miles of our state are covered in water, the landscapes of the western and eastern regions could hardly be more different. Washington is a state shaped by extremes of water: the cool, rainy West contrasts vividly with the dry, more climatically severe East. Dividing the East from the West is the dramatic Cascade mountain range, itself a setting for a plethora of lakes, rivers, and glaciers.

We invite quilt artists in the Washington region to interpret these extremes of water, either by representing the character of water in the east or the west, or in the mountainous region between. We are also interested in works that illustrate or celebrate the contrast between both regions.

All members of SAQA Washington region are invited to apply.

“Metamorphosis,” SAQA exhibit at IQF

Traveling Exhibit:   July 27, 2018 to December 31, 2021

Metamorphosis generates transformative change in shape, nature or structure. Just as animals physically develop and change from birth to maturity, concepts, ideas and even the landscape of the earth itself progress through many stages. Change may be positive, negative, frightening or enlightening. Consider physical changes, philosophical changes or personal life changes and the inevitability of decay as a process of change. Realistic, representational, and abstract work will be considered.


Deadline: February 28, 2018
