Scrap Art, call for submissions
The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is planning an exhibition focusing on both historical and contemporary examples of scrap textile art, and they are seeking excellent examples of scrappy quilts and other forms of scrap textile art to be considered for their exhibition.
The exhibition will highlight examples from the Museum collection of historical scrappy quilts as well as document current trends in re-purposing of materials in the textile arts. They are reaching out to you, their supporters and community, to inquire if there are quilts you would like to share with them for consideration of loan or donation towards this exhibition. Historical pieces, quilts with an eclectic flair, textile art that features wide-ranging combinations of color and materials, and contemporary textile art that transcends the historical trend to include innovative re-purposing of recycled materials are especially desired.
Examples can be submitted in the following ways:
Deborah Corsini, Curator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Hulbert, Collections, at email@example.com
An image of the object can be sent by email as a Jpeg. Please send an overall and a detail as well as any information on the history or artist. Put "Scrap Art" in subject of email.
They will hold a call for Scrap Art at the museum on Tuesday afternoon
At time of posting we are unable to determine deadline for submissions. Please email Deborah or Joyce if you are interested.
