We invite you to our gallery pages to see our art quilts
We hope 2018 is a year of creativity and joy.
Aileyn’s piece, The Grasslands are Winning, is on the move. As part of SAQA’s Concrete and Grasslands exhibit, it was shown last September in Shanghai. In August, 2018 it will be in Birmingham, UK and later in the fall it will be in London, Harrogate UK, and Dublin, Ireland. When we know the dates we will post them in Happenings to the left.
Jean completed a commissioned piece for her niece for her new home. It is from a photo taken of the Holy Family Shrine just southwest of Omaha, Nebraska on Interstate 80. The church was built as a roadside respite, therefore the title of the quilt, Roadside Respite.
Aileyn’s A Pasture Poem will be included in Art Quilts, a dual region exhibit (SAQASoCal/Nv and SAQA NorCal/Nv) shown at the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica and again at the Carnegie Arts Center in Turlock. See dates to the left.
We each have pieces in a regional SAQA exhibit called Local Color. It’s an exhibit of ourNorthern California/Northern Nevada region and the Connecticut region together. It showed in Connecticut in July and August and will be in Folsom, California beginning in January 2018.
SAQA’s annual Benefit Auction is a major fundraiser each fall. Members made and donated 400+ 12 x 12 inch quilts to be reverse auctioned online. Below are the pieces Jean and Aileyn donated this year.
