Hi, I am Barbara Hollinger, curator of Sacred Threads, our national quilt and fiber art exhibit.

We are planning the show for the summer of 2019 and have a project underway that will allow you to participate in creating a special installtion for our visitors.

It's called "Eye Contact: creating a connection".

There is a famous quote by Cicero (106-43 B.C.). 'Ut imago est animi voltus sic indices oculi' (The face is a picture of the mind as the eyes are its interpreter). 'The eyes are the window of the soul' is a variant form of the proverb..."Reference

Here are the specifics:

  • The dimensions are 23" wide x 5" high
  • Any fiber/ mixed media technique and materials
  • Finished using any method
  • No sleeves are needed
  • Please put your name on the back of your piece, either with a label or permanent pen
  • Human Eyes - Looking at the Viewer

Make one, or make several, and mail them to us to share in a special display at the exhibit here in the Washington DC area next summer.

Deadline May 31, 2019.
