“Volusia Wrapped in Fiber” – Deadline EXTENDED to December 21, 2010


DEADLINE -- December 21, 2010 at midnight
SAQA and SDA Artists – If you wanted to enter but couldn’t get something ready by the 15th, here is your chance. Get your entries into Volusia Wrapped in Fiber by Tuesday, Dec. 21st, 2010 and take part in this unique fiber art event. is the link to sign up for the exhibition - you do not have to log in to sign up. This is open to all SAQA and SDA artists and to other artists by invitation.

sdalogoQuilt 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.

We are looking for the exceptional works that you created but can't find a gallery that will work with you. We have 16-20 foot ceilings in Gateway - lots of room to float your art - and hundreds of feet for hanging art on walls or putting them on pedestals....If you made it with any type of fiber or used a fiber technique to create it, it fits our definition of acceptable works. No three layers connected by stitches necessary for this fiber extravaganza! But those are certainly acceptable too!

Juror: Pamela Allen

Curators: Mary McBride and Judy Gilmer
