Call for Consideration - Lark Books

 Art Quilt Portfolio – A New Series from Lark Crafts First volume in the series to be published Spring 2012
Art Quilt Portfolio: The Natural World
An Inspiring Collection of Art Quilts
By Martha Sielman
Lark Crafts is very pleased to announce that Martha Sielman will be authoring a new series of art quilt books. A new title will be published each year, starting in 2012. The first volume will focus on nature – animals, insects, fish, birds, microbes, flowers, trees, water, desert, icebergs – whatever inspires you about the natural world.  
Subsequent themes may include Landscapes/Cityscapes, Abstract/Geometric Art, People and Portraits, and Art with a Message.
Each volume in this new Art Quilt Portfolio series will include a Feature section, focusing on 15 to 20 artists in depth; this section will include an interview with each artist, several images of works by the featured artist, and a glimpse into each artist's studio. The books will also include a Gallery of works by 70 to 80 selected artists, with one full-page image per artist. Both Feature and Gallery artists will be chosen from this Call for Consideration. Artists who are selected for inclusion in Art Quilt Portfolio: The Natural World will receive full acknowledgement, a complimentary copy of the book, and the option to purchase additional copies from Lark at a discount.
This first title has a very short time frame due to publication schedules. Subsequent titles will be announced with much more notice time.
