465 submissions!

The Van Gogh Challenge closed August 1, 2017

Due to overwhelming response and overwhelming demand (four countries!), Cherrywood decided to create TWO traveling exhibits for The Van Gogh Cherrywood Challenge!

This allows more flexibility in scheduling, as well the opportunity to show off more of the fantastic submissions to the contest.

To keep things straight, the larger exhibit is called "The French Gallery" and the smaller one is called "The Dutch Gallery" symbolizing the two parts of Vincent van Gogh's life that are equally as important.

Congratulations to ALL who participated!



THANK YOU to BOHIN France for their special role in this Challenge! They provided prizes for 20 quilts recognized for workmanship and creativity. They also displayed The French Gallery at la Manufacture Bohin from August until November 2018.

Non-traveling quilts will be kept by Cherrywood for display in smaller venues. Quilts will be photographed for use by Cherrywood and published in a book. Quilts will be returned to owners after completion of travel. Quilts will be insured by Cherrywood up to $200 while in their care, custody and control. When displayed at shows, quilts are insured by the organizer or venue.
