AQE 2018 is the 13th exhibition of this internationally acclaimed show, unique for its professional presentation of art quilts. The exhibition has been widely praised by reviewers and artists not only for exhibiting the quilts in a gallery setting but also for promoting the art quilt as an art form.
"It is an honor to be selected for this prestigious exhibition, and even more so to be recognized with an award. When I first entered the galleries, I was struck by the strong visual impact of the works… and that smaller works can hold their own and be recognized. I'd like to acknowledge the effort that went into presenting a very successful exhibition."— Tracey Lawko, AQE 2016 artist and winner of the "Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts" award
