The Contemporary QuiltArt Association, a 50l (c)(3) non-profit arts organization run entirely by volunteers, is a Washington state group formed in the fall of 1986. We are a diverse group of artists, teachers, writers, and collectors living throughout Washington, and we view quilts as an exciting medium of expression and a viable contemporary art form. We are proud of our years of CQA exhibits around the state, the nation, and the hemisphere.
Membership is open to all residents of Washington State. To join CQA, complete and submit the Membership Application form. You can use PayPal buttons to pay annual dues.
Events and Shows
Monthly meeting: Join us at 10:30 on the second Saturday of each month for our business meeting, inspiring guest speakers, Showcase critique session, and socializing. See more on our "Come Join Us"page.
CQA shows: Preview the 69 quilts in our "Cutting Edge" show at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma, on view now through August 21. But don't miss the show—there's no substitute for seeing art in person.
