Art Quilts XV: Needleplay Selected Artists Announced

Congratulations to all of the artists selected for Art Quilts XV: Needleplay, which will be installed at the Chandler Center for the Arts and Vision Gallery. This year 95 works were chosen from artists living in the United States and Canada. Following are the artists' names and abbreviated titles of the selected works. This list is being posted so everyone will know what to prepare for shipping and what is available for other shows; it should not be construed as the first draft for wall tags or other promotional uses. The gallery will send more information to accepted artists regarding shipping and key deadlines.

Further congratulations to Terry Jarrard-Dimond, whose work Corner Office was selected as the image for this year's promotional postcard.

It's been exciting to jury these pieces into BOTH venues this year. The final determination of where each piece will be installed is not yet available.
