UPCYCLE! (SAQA Global - all members) • Quilt Festival Houston 2019

Repurposing used materials is one of the most effective solutions there is to deal with today's environmentally devastating waste issues. Fiber art also has a rich tradition of incorporating elements that would otherwise be discarded by turning them into compelling compositions. Challenge yourself to make a work that either incorporates recycled materials, be it cloth or non-fiber items, or that represents such a process visually. The exhibit is being juried by Katie Pasquini Masopust!

The Grand National Committee and the Portage & District Arts Centre, Manitoba invite quilt and fibre artists from across Canada to participate in their 2019 thematic exhibition "STILL".
The committee challenges you to create a piece using the theme "Still". For example, your piece could celebrate the longevity of a place, event or idea; demonstrate the ability of an object to be motionless; slice out a millisecond of time in which a continuously moving object can be viewed as frozen in time or let your imagination interpret this theme some other way.
Entry submission Deadline – Saturday, April 13, 2019
