Quilt Symposium Exhibition Convenor Maria Rohs on The New Zealand Quilt Show
I contacted Maria Rohs, the exhibition convenor of the NZ National Quilt Symposium happening in Christchurch in October 2017, and she was happy to come on the show and give us a rundown of how the exhibition is shaping up and the work that she and her committee and been doing up until now.
Maria and her team have been working incredibly hard getting the venues organised, the judges sorted, and the categories prepared. But it didn't stop there! The entries flowed in, then the jurying had to happen. Once quilts were accepted they began to arrive and needed sorting. Professional photography needed to be done and soon the official judging will happen. Then, in next to no time, the exhibition will need to be hung, prizes awarded and then after a flurry of viewing days and it will all be over!
Maria and I discuss how the online entry system worked, who the judges are, how the jurying and judging processes will work and how she will feel once the exhibition is finally up. We talk about the venues and all the complementary exhibitions that will happen at the same time.
