1st Biennial Members Exhibition

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is pleased to announce the 1st Annual Members Exhibition in our Porcella gallery, FiberSpace. Artists who are current members may apply to exhibit up to three works in the exhibitions Juncture I & II.

Now in its fortieth year, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is at a juncture in time, where we can both reflect on the past and look forward to the future. A juncture can also be an intersection of place or events, often one laden with symbolic potential: In many folk traditions, junctures as represented by crossroads are a potent metaphor for transition. Though a juncture can be a time for reflection, the word can also describe a critical moment or crisis that demands immediate action. With the concept as their point of departure, artists may take the exhibitions theme for "juncture" where it leads them. 

Marianne Lettieri, Juror

Marianne Lettieri is a visual artist whose mixed media constructions investigate individual and cultural values associated with everyday objects and discarded materials. She is a recipient of the 2017 SVLaureates award for the achievement in the arts and contribution to the cultural life of Silicon Valley.
