Visionary - Regional Call for Entry

VISIONARY (SAQA Regional) ME/NH/VT, Lead Regions but MA/RI, CT & NY also eligibleDeadline: December 31, 2019

Visionary is a clear-eyed exploration of what we see. Think about events you see happening in the years 2020 and 2021 or what might happen in the future. Or think about other ways that we "see.” Some examples might include "seeing" from a distant vantage point or a close-up view, "seeing" through play or discovery, "seeing" through color or light and shadow. Consider adding text to your piece so that viewers can see your idea in another way. Also consider that negative space in artwork can be described as the space we don't see. You could incorporate thoughtful use of negative space as part of your design. Negative space is not the same as negative concepts--but you could explore negative
concepts if you wish as well.

Quilts for this exhibit must be 20” x 20”, wall-hung, with a standard 4” rod pocket.
Juror: Carol Larson,…
