Looking Up!

I’ve been spending a great deal of one-on-one time with my computer lately. As a co-convenor of the Judging Education Pilot Program of The Quilters’ Guild of NSW Inc, I am preparing for our upcoming session on judging and reviewing textile art.   We have a full day in store including:

  • a presentation by Judy Hooworth on the Elements and Principles of Design;
  • a “Judges Choice” exercise where each participant chooses a work from Quilt National 2015 and gives a short presentation using the DAIJ-Description, Analysis, Interpretation, Judgment methodology (see, for example, How to Critique Artwork like a Pro);
  • a jurying exercise where teams select 8-12 works for an exhibition from a pool of 24 works; and
  • a discussion on judging textile art and a mock judging exercise including giving written feedback to the entrants.

I’ve finished compiling and distributing the materials so I can cross that off my list.  And here’s a photo from my morning walk to remind myself that it pays to look up every now and then!
