s and b criteria

Hi there everyone. A reminder that stitched and bound, WA’s own special quilt exhibition for unusual and original quilts, is happening again this year at the ZigZag Gallery Kalamunda, 11 -27 October. We invite everyone to enter and to visit.            

Some words of caution for intending entrants

Please ensure all Conditions of Entry are satisfied before you enter your work. Conditions for 2019 are not the same as they were for 2017.

Remember your entry must be your original design, and your own work.  This is a juried exhibition maintaining a high standard where judges examine your artist’s statement which discusses your motivation behind your work as well as the actual process you used to make the work.

What is an original work?

It must be a piece from your imagination, something you designed yourself. It could not for example be part of a kit or something from a workshop or made under tuition. Such works are suitable for other exhibitions such as QuiltWest.

CQG is running a workshop on writing an artist’s statement at their April meeting. If you miss this then examples will be available from the CQG website  http://contemporarywa.wordpress.com

Hard-copy entry forms are available with the Conditions of Entry, but the organisers much prefer online entries because of ease of processing. Thank you!

Photography for stitched and bound

A common weakness in photographs submitted for stitched and bound 2017 was lack of sharpness, in other words blur. The photo below of ‘this discovering 5’  by Ruth de Vos for stitched and bound 2017, photo by the artist, does not suffer this limitation. You might find the article Suggestions for Photography   useful, if you, like Ruth, choose to take your own photos for stitched and bound 2019. HELP is also at hand – before submitting your entry, to find out if your photographs fit the Conditions of Entry, email them to pat.forster@iinet.net.au or megcowey@me.com

s and b official opening today

It was great to see a large gathering of quilt/textile people at Zig Zag Gallery this afternoon, including almost all ‘stitched and bound 2017’ exhibitors. ‘Quilts’ from the rafters, ‘quilts’ on the walls, and ‘quilts’ on plinths–all in  the name of the game we call art quilts. Thank you to everyone who came and helped make a joyful occasion. Photos will follow if the committee are sent some!!
