Make time this month and in October to create YOUR ART QUILT for the 2017 Trunk Show Collection!

2017 Trunk Show - SAQA Artists in Tour!

Now accepting submissions until November 30, 2016

SAQA is inviting its members to showcase their artistic expression by creating a 10" x 7" art quilt or, on a limited basis, 3-D Artwork for our upcoming traveling 2017 Trunk Show.
Have fun exploring a new subject, developing a technique, or working with an idea or concept with which you are already familiar. Whatever you decide, enjoy yourself!   
  • Artwork must meet the SAQA definition of an art quilt: “The art quilt is a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure.”
  • 2-D entries must measure 10" high x 7" wide (25.4cm x 17.8cm) in a PORTRAIT orientation.
  • 3-D Artwork will be allowed on a limited basis (maximum 5 entries). See prospectus for more details.
  • Entrants must upload a full view photo of their art on the Entry Form.  This image will be used for promotional and identification purposes.
  • Artwork must be RECEIVED BY Saturday, January 14, 2017 (online submission deadline is November 30th)
The 2017 Trunk Show will premiere at the 2017 SAQA Conference, April 27 - 30, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Following the conference, the exhibit will travel to venues both in and out of the United States for up to three years.
