Jurying QSWFA seeks to feature work that is not only of the highest calibre in craftsmanship and technical ability, but which also speaks to the intricacy of expression, intimacy of design, thoughtful communication, and visual excitement. Entries will be evaluated on concept, design, technique, craftsmanship, and creative exploration.  

All items displayed will be at the discretion of the curatorial team. We reserve the right to make the final decision as to whether the display meets appropriate requirements. If the work is unable to be displayed in the exhibition and if you have indicated on the entry form, the work will be transferred to the gallery shop. Otherwise, it will not be put on display. The artist understands that all accepted work must remain for the duration of the exhibit.
