Prospectuses

Cartoons
The dictionary says a cartoon is a humorous or satirical drawing. I am looking for both silly and serious, simple or complex. Have you drawn a caricature of your dog or uncle? Do you doodle on napkins? You may already have artwork that is a cartoon. If not, it’s time to create a cartoon art quilt. There are no size or age restrictions. 3-D entries are welcome as well. (As with any art show entry, the quality of the photograph matters.)  You must be a current member of FRCQ to participate in this call.  Email images (limit of 3 entries, no details needed) March 24 – March 31, 2021 to severn.anne@gmail.com.  Image Size: 300 dpi and 1500 pixels on the longest side.

 

New Beginnings
2020 was a hard year of COVID-19 and political strife. We all are, I’m sure, looking forward to a new year and better times, both personally and for our country. I’m seeking 2D and 3D fabric art that is an expression of the idea of starting anew, of hoping for and/or working toward a change or changes that will contribute to your own happiness and/or to the healing of our battered nation. What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to see happen in the country this year? In the world?  (As with any art show entry, the quality of the photograph matters.)  You must be a current member of FRCQ to participate in this callEmail images (limit of 3 entries, no details needed) May 24 – May 31, 2021 to joansowada@gmail.com Image Size: 300 dpi and 1500 pixels on the longest side.

 

Movement (of any kind)
It can be an animal running, a tree bending in the wind, a waterfall, or weeds swaying in the breeze.
It can be abstract, figurative, even 3D Movement needs to be the main theme.  (As with any art show entry, the
quality of the photograph matters.)  You must be a member of FRCQ to participate in this call.  Email images (limit of 3 entries, no details needed).   July 24 – July 31, 2021

Our Humanity
As humans, we are endowed with an incredible range of abilities, emotions, and potential. We are unique. Aspects of our humanity can include our connections to others, accomplishing the things we find meaningful, or practicing our spirituality. Ideas for expressing this theme might be hands doing things, all or part of a face, images of ancestors, or the use of symbolism and text. Whatever you choose to do, it will have the stamp of your uniqueness on it.  (As with any art show entry, the quality of the photograph matters.)  You must be a current member of FRCQ to participate in this call.  Email images (limit of 3 entries, no details needed) Sept 24 – Sept. 30, 2021 to joansowada@gmail.com.  Image Size: 300 dpi and 1500 pixels on the longest side.

 

Closer Proximity
A window into social justice
Bryan Stevenson, Founder of the Equal Justice Initiative and “Just Mercy” Author, promotes the notion of engaging in closer proximity to understanding social injustice and activate solutions for change from a grass roots level. This show is an opportunity to explore visual arts windows into racial inequity, human trafficking, forced displacement, immigration, religious persecution, political power abuse, domestic violence, prison abuse, discrimination and the many injustices that infect our world in the hopes of recognizing and understanding injustice, in order to help bring justice to all.  (As with any art show entry, the quality of the photograph matters.)  Please include a one paragraph story or description of your art with your submission.  You must be a current member of FRCQ to participate in this call.  Email images (limit of 3 entries, no details needed) and story/description Sept 24 – Sept. 30, 2021 to joansowada@gmail.comImage Size: 300 dpi and 1500 pixels on the longest side.
