As mentioned at the October IMQG meeting, here is some very tentative basic info on an upcoming modern quilt exhibit in Wellsboro, PA in September 2015. Remember, this is just all tentative and subject to change. As details are finalized, more info will be provided. The info is provided now so you can start working on quilts to enter!
Modern quilters within a 150-mile radius of Wellsboro Pennsylvania will be invited to enter their quilts for a planned juried exhibit at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania in September 2015. The entries may be for sale, but that is not a requirement. The Gmeiner retains a 15% commission.
The Gmeiner is a lovely, mid-century modern design art gallery in the middle of picturesque Wellsboro. Exhibits change monthly, and include themes like photography, sculpture, paintings, quilts, etc, all by artists within the 150-mile radius. When there is an exhibit on display, the gallery is open seven days a week, 2PM - 5PM, always with free admission. After an opening reception, most exhibits hang for approximately three weeks.
So, IMQG members....don't be afraid to enter your quilts in this exhibit, even though it will be a juried show. Just remember that your quilts should have at least some of the characteristics of what makes a modern quilt (as defined in today's quilting community). The more quilts that are entered, the better the exhibit!
