Upcoming Exhibition Opportunity: Art Quilt Australia 2023
Art Quilt Australia 2023, which includes Expressions: the Wool Quilt Prize, seeks to promote excellence and originality in contemporary art quilts, especially quilts made with wool. Larger works, up to 2 metres, are encouraged. This is Ozquilt Network’s premier exhibition and is run in collaboration with the National Wool Museum in Geelong.
Art Quilt Australia 2023 is open to all artists resident in Australia and New Zealand as well as OZQN members worldwide. Online entry opens on 15 March and closes on 2 June 2023. Conditions will be released in December and are generally the same as for previous Art Quilt Australia exhibitions. The main change for 2023 is that wool quilts will move into a clearly identified category. Non-wool quilts, or quilts that do not want to be considered for the Wool Quilt Prize, will form the other category. Two entries may be submitted only if they are in different categories. Up to $9000 in prize money is offered with this exhibition.
