GALLERY ONE VISUAL ARTS CENTER announces their fifth national juried exhibition titled The Ties that Bind .  Entries of artist quilts will be accepted from across the nation and juried by Joey Veltkamp for inclusion in a month-long exhibition, March of 2019 in the main gallery of Gallery One in downtown Ellensburg, WA. Opportunities for lectures, workshops, and/or special events may be offered to select artists to accompany the exhibition. $800 in awards will be distributed by the juror and a slideshow of accepted works posted on our website. Please check www.gallery-one.org/callforartists for more information.
 
Media:  For the purpose of this exhibition, we define an Art Quilt as an original exploration of a concept or idea rather than the handing down of a pattern.  Art quilts experiment with textile manipulation, color, texture and/or diversity of materials. An Art Quilt often pushes quilt world boundaries but should consist predominately of fiber or a fiber-like material with two or more layers which are held together with stitches, piercing or other methods of joining.

Entry fee:  $20 for first entry - $10 each additional entry, maximum of 6

Juror:  Joey Veltkamp  makes text-based fabric work and drawings. His work has been shown at Seattle Art Museum, Frye Art Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, Greg Kucera Gallery, SOIL, and other galleries in the northwest. Joey is currently prepping for his first solo museum exhibition in 2020. He lives in Bremerton, Washington with his husband.
