Inland Northwest Modern Quilt Juried Exhibition
Jundt Galleries, June 3 to August 26, 2023
Reception: Friday evening, June 2, 2023
Call for Entries submission link: TBD
In the summer of 2023, the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University will present the Inland Northwest Modern Quilt Juried Exhibition, organized by Paul Manoguerra, director/curator, Karen Kaiser, curator of education, Britta Arendt, museum registrar/program coordinator, and Robin Dare, preparator/art handler at the museum. The museum will partner with the Inland Northwest Modern Quilt Guild (INMOD) to promote the call for entries and the exhibition guidelines.
INMOD was founded January 2016 in Spokane, Washington to meet the growing need to have a modern quilting community in the region. Its mission is “to provide an environment of inspiration, education, and charity in our community through fresh-modern quilting.” Likewise, borrowing from the “Introduction” to The Modern Quilt Guild’s 2017 publication Modern Quilts: Designs of the New Century: “Modern quilts are utilitarian. They are art. They tell stories. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They break the rules. They make a statement.”

2nd Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition
Jundt Galleries and Arcade Gallery, June 1 to August 24, 2024
Reception: Friday evening, May 31, 2024
Coming soon, the Jundt Art Museum at Gonzaga University will present the 2nd Triennial Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition, organized by the staff of the museum.
This juried display, now occurring at Gonzaga University every third summer, seeks to present the diversity and dynamism of contemporary artistic activity in the Inland Northwest while celebrating the relationship between art and the local landscape.
Selection of works and award winners for the 2nd Triennial Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition will again be made by the staff of the Jundt Art Museum. Works will be chosen for the show based upon the museum staff’s understanding of artistic quality and merit, the work’s adherence to the landscape theme and issues, the educational and professional achievements of the artist, and the observance of the rules and guidelines of the application process.
The first Inland Northwest Juried Landscape Art Exhibition was held at the Jundt Art Museum from May 26 to August 11, 2018, and attracted almost 4,000 visitors to campus during the summer months. The award winners for the 2018 show included 1st place winner Amalia Fisch (Spokane, Washington) for her oil on canvas painting Kettle River Patchwork, and 2nd place winner Scott Bailey (East Wenatchee, Washington) for his painting 46˚ 51’ 06” N 121˚ 45’ 28” W (Delaunay Triangulation). Honorable mention awards were given to Owen McAuley (Cheney, Washington), Dennis Smith (Medical Lake, Washington), and Gregg Schlanger (Ellensburg, Washington).
