Studio art quilt associates [saqa] regional exhibition
The exhibition "Imagination: 1 x 4" presents a selection of new contemporary art quilts created by artist members of SAQA from Maryland, Washington DC, West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina. In creating the individual pieces, each participating fiber artist responded to an invitation to use their imagination as the door through which to escape the physical constraints of reality, with the only requirement being to create an art quilt in a format measuring 1 foot wide by 4 feet high. The display of unique and original art quilts has been selected by juror Maggie Vanderweit, an internationally recognized quilter and SAQA board member. The exhibition features both traditional and experimental materials and textile techniques which include hand dying, surface design, piecing, machine and hand quilting, sewing and embroidery.
