Juncture: 40th Anniversary Members Exhibition
For International artists

The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is pleased to announce the First Annual Members Exhibition in our community 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 exhibition’s theme of “juncture” where it leads them.
