Entering FRCQ Exhibits - Helpful Information

Helpful info about entering FRCQ exhibits

One of the great things about Front Range Contemporary Quilters is our strong exhibit program, which gives our members a chance to show off and maybe even sell our work. People from out of state who rarely attend our meetings still belong, primarily to participate in our exhibits.

FRCQ would like to encourage all members to enter our exhibits.

We also realize that members might be intimidated by the thought of entering an exhibit. Yes, FRCQ members include nationally and internationally recognized quilt artists – but our exhibits include many pieces of art made by every level of artist. There’s room for you! And our more experienced artists will welcome you.

Not sure whether your art fits an exhibit category? Does your art meet the size limits? Contact the exhibition coordinator listed in the call for entry.

Not sure how to make a sleeve for an art quilt? Or how to write an artist’s statement? Or photograph your art? The world is full of teachers who have posted helpful, free tutorials on just about every aspect of getting an art quilt ready to show. Google your subject, and pick from the choices that pop up.
