Ozquilt Network’s online themed exhibition is a new opportunity for OZQN members to exhibit their art. In 2023, the theme was Memories of Childhood. In 2024, the theme is Art Movements. See call for entries information below.
Call for Entries: 2024 Theme: Art Movements
All OZQN members are invited to submit images of an art quilt for which you were inspired by art works from an art movement, for example Impression, Expressionism, Futurism, Cubism. Your textile artwork must express an aspect of the style. The emphasis may be on design elements such as shape and colour, or on art principles, subject matter or the philosophy of the art movement.
Explanations (artist statements) that explain your art-movement inspiration are invited. Selection for the exhibition will be blind so no names will be provided to the curator. Pat Forster is the administrator of the exhibition and Nina Gould is the curator.
About the curator
Nina’s artwork has developed in technique and style over many years. Nina is continually inspired by nature and her environment. The seasonal colours of the wide landscapes, the birds, native trees and plants are featured in her pottery, textiles and painting. Secondary school art teaching has been Nina’s occupation, but sharing her skills and ideas has been a lifelong passion.

Theme for 2023: Memories of Childhood
Thank you to all members who responded to the call for entries for Memories of Childhood virtual exhibition. It was an opportunity to reflect on our childhood memories, of places where we grew up, memories of grandparents and watching families grow. For some members, it was a time of sadness and loss.
The exhibition of quilts is grouped in four sections:
- Childhood memories of place
- Childhood connections to objects or nature
- Childhood emotions
- Childhood memories of family members
