This juried show will accept art pieces from local, regional, and international art quilters. The theme of this inaugural show will be Gems of the Ocean.
Details of the Call to Artists can be found at http://oceanartistrycall.com/ Quilt entries will be accepted between December 15, 2016 and January 15, 2017 and will be decided by February 1, 2017. Final judging will be made by a 5 person panel of artists and dignitaries during the show.
All selected entries will be on display during the Ocean Artistry Art Quilt show running March 10-12 at the Yachats Commons in the multi-purpose room. The show will run from 10 am – 5 pm.
“One of the goals of the show is to introduce art quilting to both locals and visitors to the area”, stated Ms. Bass. “We thought the ocean theme would allow artists to explore the beauty of this area and make interpretations based on their own whimsy.”
The new art show has already received financial support from both the Siletz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund and the City of Yachats’ New Event Fund. “We’re delighted to bring this type of show to Yachats. This will brighten up the town and we welcome everyone to experience an art quilt show”’ added Bass. For more information on the show please contact email@example.com
