Choosing the Best Category for Your Quilt
Unfortunately due to the current Corona virus this meeting has had to be postponed.
Linda Seward will be giving a talk about choosing the best category for your work at an exhibition or a judged show, at our meeting on Tuesday 21st April 2020. Below is Linda’s description of her talk:
“When entering your work in an exhibition or judged show, it can be difficult to choose the perfect category. What is the difference between an Art quilt and a Contemporary one, and how do these differ from Pictorial quilts? Should you be thinking about entering an entirely different category to give your quilt the best chance of being noticed? This talk features the work of over 35 textile artists who are making exciting quilts in a variety of styles. An experienced judge, Linda will explain what an art quilt is, and illustrate how it differs from a contemporary and a pictorial quilt by comparing examples of similar styles and designs. By the end of the talk you should be able to differentiate between the categories so you can better decide where to enter your quilt in a show.
If members would like to bring a piece of their work that they don’t mind discussing, we can talk about which category it should be entered into and why. Otherwise, nothing is required for my talk except patience as the audience will be the guinea pigs for this first showing!”
