Calling all Quilters: VAC Quilt Show
Are you a quilter? The Volcano Art Center has issued a call for Big Island quilters for its first annual quilt show, which will run from July 15 to Aug. 7.
“Quilts in the Forest, Quilts in the Park” is the theme of the 2016 show, in dedication to the centennial celebration of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park and the National Park Service.
“Our vision for this year’s show is exciting for me as an artist who loves colors and textures in our rainforest environment”, says jewelry artist and amateur quilter Tad Sewell, committee chair for the Quilt exhibit.
Under the “Quilts in the Forest, Quilts in the Park” theme, the show will include categories like The Hawaiian Quilt, Find Your Park, Art to Wear, Bed Runner, and Miniature Quilt.
All Big Island residents are invited to participate, but must register by May 27.
Prospectus and entry forms are available on the VAC website.
