2015 Tasmanian Art Quilt Prize

A collaborative program between the Tasmanian Quilting Guild & the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery.
The Tasmanian Art Quilt Prize Exhibition will be held at Narryna House , Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, at Battery Point in Hobart from the 6th until the 22nd November, 2015. ‘Narryna ‘ is a beautiful historic home that has a wonderful collection of antique textiles: quilts, clothing, toys, embroideries , linens and samplers.

At first glance the theme may seem to focus on women in history but it is an ambiguous statement that may reflect stories in the modern world from a male or female perspective. The theme may be interpreted in many different ways.
The Tasmanian Art Quilt Prize is open to textile artists across Australia. This biennial exhibition aims to promote best practice in art quilting and encourage experimentation by presenting new and exciting textile art.

Entrants are sought nationally. The judging panel will draw up a shortlist from the images and the documentation supplied. The judging panel considers all entries and selects the artists who will be invited to present quilts for the final exhibition. All entrants will be notified of the first round of judging results by Monday 21st September, 2015. Information about your selection will not be available before this date. The judging panel may decide that no prize is to be awarded if the work is not of a required standard, or, if in its judgment, other factors necessitate this action. The judging panel’s decision is final at all stages of judging and no correspondence will be entered into regarding these decisions.

Entrants must submit quilts in accordance with the terms and conditions. 
      Quilts may be any shape. Maximum height‐ 1.5 metres. Maximum width ‐ 1.5 metres
