ARTQUILTSrespite

April 20 – June 24, 2017
Page-Walker Arts & History Center, Cary, NC

Respite
A short period of rest or relief from something difficult, stressful, unpleasant, painful, emotional, or exerting. A way to escape, even if for a fleeting moment. Relief is found in reflection, prayers, meditation, physical movement or creative outlets. Courage is found with companionship, a change in circumstance or attitude or taking time to breathe. With a lull, or timeout, we gain strength to continue. We invite you to take break, then share your interpretation of respite in art quilt form.

FOCUS: FUNCTION | Excellence in Fibers 2016

Because of the vast response to the first Excellence in Fibers exhibition, we have established a more refined approach for Excellence in Fibers 2016, to better identify the range of the makers and their intent. Therefore, we have established five categories to narrow the entry focus. The final exhibition catalog will be expanded to make a larger publication and include more of the selected works. Prizes will be given in every category. This will allow for a more comprehensive exhibition and increased opportunities for the artists.

There will be a $300 prize for each category, with a $600 Best of Show prize chosen from all entries. This more than doubles the available prizes compared to EIF 2015. In each category, 12 works will be selected. This is twice the number of selected works as EIF 2015.

The function emphasis on EIF 2016 puts the focus on the maker's intentions and can incorporate the vast range of fiber mediums.
