|We are happy to tell you that the What's for Dinner? exhibit will continue into 2014. The entire scoop is here|
All quilts must be uniform in size, horizontal format, with nothing hanging off the sides, top, or bottom. The finished quilt size, or “place setting,” must be 24” x 15” (width x height) and cannot exceed 2" in depth. Please, no metal silverware attached. Artist Statements should explain your piece, the meal, and the meaning behind it. Artist Statements may be edited for clarity and length. Be sure to select “quilt” when asked for the category.
We’re also adding a new category this year: 3-D fabric table decorations! Make display items for the table - think bottles of wine, pitchers of “water,” vases with flowers, serving bowls with ladles, cream and sugar bowls, or salt and pepper shakers. Items should be true to life-size so that everything is approximately the same scale, i.e., nothing smaller than 4” and nothing taller than 24”. Artist Statements should explain your piece and the meaning behind it. Artist Statements may be edited for clarity and length. Be sure to select “décor” when asked for the category.
Completed submissions with visuals must be received online by Friday, July 11, 2014. You will be notified no later than Friday, August 1, 2014, regarding the piece(s) to be included in this exhibit along with shipping instructions. If selected, the quilts will need to arrive in Houston no later than Friday, September 5, 2014. Quilts will be returned by the end of December 2014 if quilt does not travel, or arrangements may be made to have your piece(s) picked up at the conclusion of the show. If you agree to allow your piece(s) to travel, your quilt will be returned by the end of August 2015.
