Open call to all artists to address the complex theme of “home.” All mediums encouraged, painting, photography, performance, sculpture, mixed media, video, and sound.
A place of home has very different meanings to all of us. Sometimes it is a memory, a sense of place, a person, a dream, a certain chaos, a metaphorical anchor, a roof over our heads.

Open call to artists to submit handcrafted quilts designed around the theme of “blue” for an open-call regional quilt challenge in conjunction with Stitched: The Art of Quilting, a quilt festival at Crosstown Arts in the spring of 2019.
BLUE is your chance to show your best work. Quilts can be traditional, modern or art-focused. They can be appliquéd, pieced, collaged, fused, engineered, hand- or machine-stitched, 3-D, painted, sculpted, or any variation in between. What they have in common: 3 layers and stitching.
The deadline for submission is April 1, 2019. We will accept up to 3 entries from an individual or group. The entry fee is $15 per quilt (economic hardship waivers are available).
