Two upcoming shows at AVA showcase artistic diversity.
Chattanooga artists have endless opportunities to share their latest creations with the community. One of the biggest supporters is the Association for Visual Arts. Since 1986, AVA has provided programs, resources, exhibition spaces, and more for “those who make art”.
Two of AVA’s exhibits, the “AVA All-Members Salon Show”, and “Needle & Thread” are scheduled to open in August and September respectively—so there’s still time to get involved.
Opening August 1, the “AVA All-Members Salon Show” will be a non-juried salon-style exhibit featuring the work of current AVA members. Only one piece from each artist will be accepted and each piece must be no larger than four feet in any direction. All 2-D or 3-D media will be considered.
Designed to celebrate the American Quilter’s Society QuiltWeek, and pay tribute to completed quilts and the process behind them, “Needle & Thread” will be a display of aspects of quilt making. That might include materials, sewing, cutting and pattern techniques, or a theme of quilt making or sewing. It’s up to the artist, but the options are endless.
AVA’s Exhibition Advisory Panel will jury “Needle & Thread”. The exhibit will open September 6.
