The Quilters’ Guild of NSW Inc. & Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre
Invite entries for a Contemporary Quilt Exhibition

“Evolution, Change, Challenge - A Contemporary Quilt” 
Saturday 29th August - Tuesday 8th September, 2015

In August and September, 2015, Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre will host a major exhibition of quilts: “Labours of Love. Australian Quilts 1850 – 2015”. Quilts will be sourced from The National Gallery Australia, Canberra, Powerhouse Museum, Sydney and noted quilters and fibre artists from across NSW.

In conjunction with this exhibition, there will be a juried exhibition of contemporary quilts in the adjoining Hazelhurst Community Gallery from 29th August to 8th September, 2015.

The Contemporary Quilt Exhibition will come under the umbrella of The Quilters‘ Guild of NSW Inc. and is open to quilters and fibre artists from all states and territories in Australia. Membership of the Guild is not a requirement of entry. There will be two prizes offered, a First Prize of $1,500 and a Viewer’s Choice Prize of $200.

Judges will carefully consider the appropriate interpretation of the theme and design concepts applied, particularly the use of colour and value for all quilts entered.

Further information and entry forms may be obtained via the Guild website (available from late November) or through the Guild office on 9283 3737.
