No Place to Call Home

Patricia Gould asked that we pass on this information to members in our Region about an exhibition opportunity.

Theme: Homelessness exists all around the world. There are a myriad of
conditions that result in homelessness: poverty, unemployment, lack of
education, drug addiction, abandonment, mental illness, war and civil unrest,
along with man-made and natural disasters. This exhibit is taking a look at
homelessness in all its implications.

Curator: Kathleen McCabe
250 H Avenue
Coronado, CA 92118

Eligibility and Guidelines:
• Entry is by digital images only (directions below).
• You may submit up to 3 entries.
• Quilts must be created after 2005 and not shown in a previous SAQA exhibition.
• Entries must be 24" - 40" width, and 48" maximum in length
• 3-D, free-standing works will NOT be accepted.
• Artwork must meet the SAQA definition of an art quilt: a contemporary artwork
exploring and expressing aesthetic concerns common to the whole range of visual
arts: painting, printmaking, photography, graphic design, assemblage and
sculpture, which retains, through materials or technique, a clear relationship to the
folk art quilt from which it descends.
• Artists are responsible for shipping and insurance to Kathleen McCabe in
Coronado, CA and for return shipping to their homes from the last venue. SAQA
will arrange to insure the artwork during the exhibitions and while it travels.
• Artwork MAY be for sale. SAQA will charge a 25% commission on all sales;
exhibiting venues may also charge a commission, but total commission will never
exceed 50%.
