The third show in the series, scheduled to run from Jan. 1 to Feb. 29, will feature the work of contemporary quilters. Pennsylvania craftsmen are invited to enter any work crafted with quilting techniques, such as traditional quilts, pillows, clothing, wall hangings and table runners.
"Quilting is something that is close to the heart of Pennsylvanians," said Jessica Lantz, curator of arts and assistant manager. "Because of its strong tradition in the state, we are hoping this will be a popular series."
The deadline to submit entries for consideration is Monday, Dec. 10. All artists are limited to four entries, which must be submitted digitally either by e-mail on a disk and sent in the mail. There is no fee to enter; however, all work chosen for the showcase must be available for sale on consignment. Applicants must be Pennsylvania residents.
The Radius Selections Committee will review all entries. Those artists whose work is chosen for the showcase are responsible for delivery and return of their work.
Direct all e-mail entries to Lantz at the e-mail address below. Mailed digital entries should be addressed to Lantz at 300 N. Third St., Harrisburg, PA 17120.
Radius is a partnership of HACC and the State of Pennsylvania/Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission.
