Call for Submissions: “Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits” by Lark Crafts

LarkLOGOCALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits

An Inspiring Collection of Art Quilts
By Martha Sielman

Lark Crafts is pleased to announce that Martha Sielman will be authoring the second volume in a new series of art quilt books. This book will focus on works that feature people and portraits—individuals or groups—that explore the human condition.

Each volume in the Art Quilt Portfolio series will include a Feature section, focusing on 15 to 20 artists in depth; this section will include an interview with each artist, several images of works by the featured artist, and a glimpse into each artist’s working methods. The books will also include a Gallery of works by 70 to 80 selected artists. Both Feature and Gallery artists will be chosen from this Call for Consideration. Artists who are selected for inclusion in Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits will receive full acknowledgement, a complimentary copy of the book, and the option to purchase additional copies from Lark at a discount.
