Martha Tabis has gotten our combo challenge exhibit scheduled for the BURNING BUSH GALLERY IN WHEATON FROM MAY 13 – JUNE 4, 2017.The Burning Bush Gallery (Wheaton) publishes a booklet about the art in their exhibits.
Martha Tabis has exhibited there in the past and shares the following:
The booklet that they give to attendees at the artists’ reception is nicely done and thorough. I've found that this info facilitates conversation with attendees, and can help sell a piece. People do buy at these events as the gallery has a good following. No entry fee, no jurying, good following, attractive space.
All interested Improv artists need to fill out the following form and get it to me by April 15. firstname.lastname@example.org (Burning Bush form). I will submit it to the gallery as a group. If I don't get a form from every artist, I will assume they don't want to be included in the booklet...I'm not going to chase down everyone's forms. :)
We ask that everyone checks "no" to the question about loaning their work to other churches. We are scheduled to have our exhibit in Tinley Park so it is not available for loan at this point.
As far as sales, I think we could leave the date of delivery up to the artist and the buyer. Hopefully, any buyers will be willing to wait until after the August exhibit.
June 25 reception at The Norris Gallery honors PAQA quilt artists in current exhibit
A dual-themed exhibit of nearly 60 art quilts is on display in the gallery of the Norris Cultural Arts Center through July 15. The exhibit features the works of more than 25 member artists of the Professional Art Quilt Alliance (PAQA), created on the themes of Exploration and Intentional Improvisation, nearly all of which are available for purchase.
Suburban Chicago-based PAQA will host a free reception at the Norris Gallery honoring the exhibit’s artists, Sunday, June 25, 2 to 4 p.m.
The exhibit is free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, except for Tuesday, July 4. Information on weekend openings is available by calling 630-584-7200.
Roz DeBoer will be taking over the scheduling of the “Exploration” challenge quilts. So far the exhibit is scheduled for Feb, and August 2017 and May 2017. Let Roz know if you have possible venues at email@example.com.
In August 2017 we have the opportunity to combine our “Explorations” and “Improv” challenges for an exhibit at THE VOGT VISUAL ART CENTER (VVAC) IN Tinley Park, IL. We need a minimum of 15 Improv pieces to combine with the 25 Exploration pieces to fill the space. This is a wonderful opportunity---there is no fee for us to use the space and no commission for pieces sold!
Roz DeBoer requests that you e-mail her a picture of your IMPROV quilt entries as soon as you finish it. This is in preparation for the August 2017 exhibit in Tinley Park, so we have an idea of what quilts are coming.
PLEASE ALSO TELL HER THE LENGTH OF YOUR QUILT.THANKS!!!! firstname.lastname@example.org.
