Guidelines and Requirements — read carefully

  • Exhibit items must be made by members of Quilters Unlimited.
  • Pieces shown in past City Hall exhibits are not eligible.
  • City Hall policy prohibits nudity and/or religious subject matter to be exhibited in the art gallery. COCA reserves the right to reject specific pieces of work that do not meet standards of quality and public safety, or are inappropriate, as deemed by the COCA Exhibitions Director.
  • Entries can be functional and non-functional items such as quilts, wall-hangings, pillows, wearable pieces (jackets, vests), accessories, tote bags and soft sculptures.
  • A hanging sleeve must be securely sewn on the back of each entry, and a round hanging rod (not flat) with a screw eye at each end must be provided by the exhibitor. Make sure the hanging rod is proportional to your piece – not too light and not too heavy.
  • A label containing the piece title and exhibitor’s name must be sewn on the back or inside of each piece.
  • Quilts must be submitted in a pillowcase with the submitter’s name on it.
  • Youth of Quilters Unlimited members may submit an entry in the show on a “space available” basis. Name of member and relationship to member must be on the entry form.
  • The exhibit is open to photography and Quilters Unlimited or the Council on Culture and Arts may use the images of the entries at their discretion.
  • All entries are covered by the City of Tallahassee insurance (for declared value of up to $4,999.00) while in the gallery space. All artists will be asked to substantiate the declared value of work if a claim is made. An estimate of value will be required on the application.
  • The exhibitor agrees to abide by these guidelines and accepts the decisions made by Quilters Unlimited representatives, and the Council on Culture and Arts (COCA) staff in regards to placement of the entries in the exhibit.
  • Entries may not be picked up before the exhibit closes.
