EVOLUTIONS 2019

EVOLUTIONS 2019 is an open challenge to all quilters and fiber artists in celebration of yesterday’s traditions as well as tomorrow’s innovations. Evolution can be defined as growth—a process of continuous change, from lower to higher or from simpler to more complex. Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum challenges you to create your concept of an evolution quilt. Interpret evolutions any way you choose—on a personal level, on a global level, or perhaps related to changes and growth of your favorite means of creative expression, the quilt. There are no design restrictions. Selected quilts will be exhibited at RMQM July 22, 2019 through October 19, 2019. Ribbons will be awarded for first, second, and third place; the first place winner will be awarded a solo exhibit at RMQM in 2020.

INFORMATION OVERLOAD: Escaping the 21st Century Maze

Artists and collaborators must be a current South America, Central America, Mexico, or Caribbean Region SAQA member, or among those who list one of these regions as their second region.

Exhibition Theme:
The term of “Information Overload” was coined by Bertram Gross, political science teacher at Hunter College, in 1964, and popularized by Alien Toffler in his book Future Shock back in 1970. According to Gross, “Information Overload” occurs when the amount of input to a system exceeds its processing capacity. When that occurs, it is likely that a reduction in decision quality will occur. The overload of sensations interferes with our capacity to react to new situations and to learn. We are all immersed in an ocean of data and information and need to identify strategies to avoid chaos.

Evolving Perceptions

Open to SAQA Colorado/Utah/Wyoming Region members only

Edward Bono said, “If you can change your perception, you can change your emotion, and this can lead to new ideas.” Most people relate to and have fond memories associated with quilts; those covers for a bed made from pieces of fabric that are stitched together and filled with padding. This exhibit is intended to challenge the perceptions of what a quilt is; an exhibit that will be exciting, cutting edge and will stretch the imagination of the viewer as to what layered fabric can be. It is an opportunity for the artist to be innovative in color, line, composition and materials in depicting their vision, whether realistic, representational or abstract. The artist is invited to submit pieces that explore the limits of the medium, including 3-D and multimedia (including video and audio).

Border Wall Quilt

We’re building a wall that brings people together, To talk about building a wall that keeps people apart. Creativity is welcome; social discourse is encouraged!

General Information: The Border Wall Quilt Project is a visual representation of a discussion about the proposed border wall between Mexico and the United States. Let’s use our medium and our skills to explore all aspects of this issue and what it would mean to those on both sides. Together, let’s consider political, environmental, cultural, and economic factors. Quilters in the United States and Mexico are invited to participate.

To be a part of the Border Wall Quilt Project, create and donate up to 3 small quilted pieces, 8” x 16” ( 20 × 40 cm) expressing your views, concerns, and feelings about the proposed border wall between the US and Mexico and issues related to immigration. Under the direction of fiber artist Lea McComas, these small quilts will be used as “bricks” to build a wall about the wall. The quilt bricks will be used to create 10-foot sections of wall. Sections of wall will be placed back to back so that the installation can be viewed from both sides. In place of mortar, bricks will be suspended to create gaps that allow viewers on each side to see and hear each other. The wall will continue grow as more, and more, bricks are donated.
