Founded in 1999, Art Quilt Elements (AQE) 2022 is the 15th exhibition of this internationally acclaimed show set in suburban Philadelphia. This exhibition has been widely praised by reviewers and artists not only for exhibiting the quilts in a gallery setting but also for promoting the quilt as an art form.

The work juried into this exhibition embraces original and innovative methods and incorporates impressive craftsmanship and technical prowess.
