Call For Entry-Movement

I'm part of a group called PAQA-South, and volunteered to work on publicity for our upcoming show. Since there is so much movement in our shibori pieces of fabric, I thought it would be appropriate to post the call for entry here. I hope that some in this group will heed the call, as well as all of our blog readers--there is so much talent out there!

The Professional Art Quilters Alliance-South (PAQA-South) announces its ninth Annual Juried Exhibition of Innovative Quilts: Movement evokes moods as varied as the individuals contemplating it. Rhythmic strains of music, the flow of language, lithe dancers, or public change and social advocacy; all are examples that encompass the meaning of movement. Are you startled by a sudden movement, drawn in to the quickly moving plot of a good book, or feel the pulse of your heart as bloods flows through your veins? Military maneuvers, the inner workings of a watch, and a well-oiled machine all portray this basic necessity of life: movement. We invite you to share your interpretation of Movement in quiltart form.
