International Contemporary Quilt Art Site Membership

Screen Shot 2015-01-24 at 3.31.11 PM

We usual feature art sales sites for painting, photography and prints. This time we are entering into the medium of textile art, featuring a site that hosts a group of professional quilt artists from Britain, Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and the USA. Looking at the images of the work on the site, their quilts can sometimes be mistaken for collage art, paintings, calligraphic and Asemic art.

QUILT ART was founded in 1985 with the aim to extend the boundaries of quilting as an artistic medium and to achieve wider recognition of the quilt as an art form. The QUILT ART artist holds regular touring exhibitions in Britain and Europe and have also exhibited in Japan and Canada. To accompany each exhibition they publish a high quality exhibition catalog.

Application for new membership:

Quilt Art welcomes applications for membership. The application process is in two stages.

2. Applicants who are successful at this stage will be invited to attend an interview and bring examples of their work. This will be at the home of one of the members. A final decision will be taken after the interview.If you would like to apply to join Quilt Art, please write a letter (or email) with the information listed below:

Yesterday was the official launch of The Art website and gallery service.   The Washington State based site provides a fully-featured website  designed to bring together artists, photographers and travel enthusiasts.

The launch of this interactive website offers the online community a place to share, discover, and buy fine art and photography while inspiring others by sharing their stories, their sources of creativity and inspirational travel tales.

The website creates an online Gallery for Fine Artists and Photographers where they can sell direct to buyers worldwide by using their PayPal account (similar to e-Bay or other online stores).

The site also provides opportunities for the artists to share the stories and inspiration about their art, photography, and travel via blog posts that others can read and comment on.

Visitors to The Art Insider can engage, connect, and share with other enthusiasts. Artists and buyers can connect and interact directly with each other developing a relationship so that the “art outsider” can become an “art insider.”
