Art Quilt Elements 2018

Add to Favorites Report Listing

Event History

This is the 13th exhibition of AQE, an internationally acclaimed show set in suburban Philadelphia. “One of the distinctions of our show is our professional presentation of art quilts. The exhibition has been widely praised by reviewers and artists not only for exhibiting the quilts in our gallery settings but also for promoting the art quilt as an art form” stated Nancy Campbell, Executive Director of the Wayne Art Center.

What Makes this event different?

Art Quilt Elements is the only biennial East Coast event dedicated exclusively to the art quilt. AQE embraces the Studio Art Quilt Associates definition of the art quilt which is "a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure."
