Theme: Volusia Wrapped in Fiber

Volusia County was the first area in Central Florida to exhibit art quilts as fine art. The area has become a site for many fiber gatherings and exhibitions. This program will introduce other venues to the fiber arts and exhibit the creative growth in the fiber arts. Artists are expected to create and display their innovative works featuring textile techniques with unusual materials or common materials used in unique ways. There are a total of five venues but only two featuring Studio Art Quilt Associates and Surface Design Associates.

Quilt artists are encouraged to present works where they are reaching outside the terminology of a quilt. Surface Design artists are asked to show works that use various materials in a fiber technique (i.e. weaving with wire) or to stretch their fiber techniques to new boundaries. 3-D, free-standing works, ceiling hangings, wall hangings, and other non-traditional works will be accepted.

Juror:  Pamela Allen

Curators: Mary McBride and Judy Gilmer  
SAQA Members: Entry is by digital images only, using SAQA’s online system.
