“Form, Not Function: Quilt Art at the Carnegie” is an annual juried exhibit of contemporary quilt art held at the Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, Indiana. All works must be quilted (two or more distinct layers held together with stitches). The layers may include fiber and textile materials, but this is not required and other techniques and mediums are acceptable as long as the work is quilted, as defined above. The exhibit is open to artists, age 18 or older, living in the United States, including U.S. military bases and U.S. territories. The 2023 exhibition will be on view May 11 – July 22, 2023. Celebrating 20 years of “Form, Not Function” in 2023!
