Call for Entry: ARTQUILTSmovement

I'd like to encourage you to enter this show - fantastic venue, always an excellent show! (Full disclosure - I'm involved in the show.)
Entry Form can be found HERE
PAQA-South has made the "receive by" date a "post mark date" to give as many people as possible an opportunity to get their work entered.
The Professional Art Quilters Alliance-South (PAQA-South)announces its eighth Annual Juried Exhibition of Innovative Quilts: ARTQUILTSmovement
Movement evokes moods as varied as the individuals contemplating it. Rhythmic strains of music, the flow of language, lithe dancers, or public change and social advocacy; all are examples that encompass the meaning of movement. Are you startled by a sudden movement, drawn in to the quickly moving plot of a good book, or feel the pulse of your heart as bloods flows through your veins? Military maneuvers, the inner workings of a watch, and a well-oiled machine all portray this basic necessity of life:  movement. We invite you to share your interpretation of Movement in quiltart form.

Exhibit Opens:  May 20, 2011

For Your Inspiration: Chairs

I have a thing for beautifully designed chairs.
Last month I had the great pleasure of visiting the Milwaukee Art Museum.
A whole building full of amazing artwork and I am completely absorbed by chairs.
