“Beyond Comfort” Entry Deadline October 10, 2010 – Open to All SAQA Members

"Beyond Comfort" Exhibition of Fiber Art

Open to all SAQA members

Premiere Location: Festival of Quilts, Birmingham, England, August 2011. Additional venue locations to be determined.

Theme: This exhibit challenges each artist to venture into uncharted territories of creative expression by turning away from the comfort zones of their established body of work. It provides a "permission slip" to experiment fearlessly with radically new conceptual and narrative agendas; to employ techniques, technologies, or materials new to the artist. The artistic goal of the exhibition is to encourage reaching beyond comfort to make new and unexpected works of art.

Juror: Marci McDade

Curator: Eileen Doughty,

Entry is by digital images only, using SAQA’s online system.
