Sacred Threads 2019

Sacred Threads is an exhibition of quilts exploring themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. This biennial exhibition was established to provide a safe venue for quilters  who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey.

The objective is to create a dignified exhibition of artwork that touches on both spiritual and personal levels all those who view it. We want to share with others the experiences of quilters whose stories may be a source of healing and strength.

Entries to Sacred Thread Exhibitions are juried in by images for purposes of space and suitability of theme only. Works are not judged.

CONTRAST is an exhibit open to members of the Front Range Contemporary Quilters.

Contrast can take many forms. It can be opposites such as joy and fear, night and day, or opposing political viewpoints. More literally, contrast can be light and dark values, straight versus curved lines, or complimentary colors. More conceptual illustrations of contrast could be to make the invisible visible, reveal the concealed, or tell an untold story. The effect of contrast is to make each element more distinctive when put alongside each other. Variation and contrast make life and art more vibrant.

ANTHEMS – A LGBTQ Quilt Exhibit

On June 12, 2016, the LGBTQ Community was rocked by the massacre at Pulse Nightclub. While there was a huge outpouring of support for the victims of Pulse from within the Quilt Community, there were a marked number of homophobic commentaries as well.

In the 1980s we learned that Silence=Death. So the question arises as to how do we, as a group of LGBTQ Quilters, demonstrate who we are within the Quilting Community? Through our ART. Thus arose Anthems, a Special Exhibit about our lived experiences in quilting.

The Debut of Anthems will be at International Quilt Festival in Chicago in April, 2018. Quilts Inc has accepted the Special Exhibit on condition that they retain final say over the pieces included in that display.

Americans have owned and used guns throughout the history of our nation. Whether used for hunting, sport, protection, commerce or collection, guns have been a part of our shared heritage and culture. Today we find ourselves living in a society in which gun violence feels commonplace. Gun violence has taken its toll all over the world, in many different ways. An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of gun violence. If we are to find ways to reduce injury and death from gun violence, we must find a way to bridge this divide and talk openly and honestly about potential solutions while at the same time respecting legitimate uses for firearms. This challenging problem continues to be complicated by polarizing political positions, various underlying causes of violence in today's society, emotional responses, and the desire to enjoy shooting for sport, hunting, or protection as well as maintaining family traditions. Layered on top of these competing and conflicting opinions are the forces of both sides' sophisticated lobbying efforts and a lucrative marketplace.

Artists have been a catalyst for difficult societal conversations throughout history, here and abroad. This ever- broadening divide between opposing opinions on this subject will require creative thinking and an evaluation of a wide host of possible solutions, if we are to find ways to reduce gun violence. Artists are encouraged to explore the heritage and current cultural norms reflected in gun ownership; to consider how their personal experience with guns may influence their opinions; to find ways to engage those of differing opinions to listen to each other in a thoughtful manner; and to investigate and encourage community initiatives that may inspire action in seeking solutions. Truly valuable conversation requires looking at all sides of a subject, and considering those differing viewpoints will be essential in building a bridge over that divide.

Juncture: 40th Anniversary Members Exhibition

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is pleased to announce the First Annual Members Exhibition in our community gallery, FiberSpace. Artists who are current members may apply to exhibit up to three works in the exhibitions Juncture I & II.

Now in its fortieth year, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is at a juncture in time, where we can both reflect on the past and look forward to the future. A juncture can also be an intersection of place or events, often one laden with symbolic potential: In many folk traditions, junctures as represented by crossroads are a potent metaphor for transition. Though a juncture can be a time for reflection, the word can also describe a critical moment or crisis that demands immediate action. With the concept as their point of departure, artists may take the exhibition's theme of "juncture" where it leads them.

AQE 2018 is the 13th exhibition of this internationally acclaimed show set in suburban Philadelphia. "One of the distinctions of our show is our professional presentation of art quilts.
