SHOW YOUR WORK

A while back, I created a show calendar for the year with each show’s contact information. Today, I am sharing that with you. Basically, the calendar lists all of the long time annual, biennial, triennial art shows for fiber, craft, and quilt. I am hoping that this can be the beginning of a living document that I continue to tweak for all us.

When possible, there is a link to the exhibition space and a link to the prospectus for the show. If you see that I am missing a major show, please do share your information with me, and I will add it to the calendar.

If you could give a hoot about entering art shows, then I hope you will at least enjoy the images. These are some of the quilts that I have had in these shows.

  1. Maria, Some of these quilts I don’t believe I have seen before. What a great review of your work! And thanks for the “calendar” of the Call for Entries….I started the same thing but yours is more comprehensive. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your quilts.

    This is a terrific New Post. I love where you’ve taken your work! I thought about the ketchaputcha offer (spelling?) and decided to take a pass. I want to be free to just wander about at the meeting, and not have to “suffer” the anxiety that speaking in public would give me (I lost my chutzpah for public performing when I retired a few years ago from university professor to little old lady who sews in her basement “studio”). I’m going to keep my eyes open to try to find you at the meeting, and at least give you a big hug for your art, your energy, and your wonderful blog! Sue

  4. Thanks for the great resource, Maria! It’s fun to see this mini-retrospective of your work. I remember seeing your “Betsy Ross” quilt at AQE; it’s wonderful! Even better in person. And thanks for the shout-out for SPUN.
