In the last regional newsletter I talked about putting together a trunk show to represent the diversity of styles and techniques of our MA/RI region SAQA members. The trunk show will be available to travel to our regional meetings as well any parlor, quilt and art guild meetings and other interested groups or venues. Each SAQA member can create a piece of work measuring 9” x 11” which will then be mounted on 11” x 14” mat board with a frame opening of 8” x 10.
I thought I'd show you the piece that I made for the trunk show so you can see how the pieces will look mounted and framed:
Each piece will have an artists
statement on the back and the entire thing will be packaged in a clear
plastic sleeve so that it can be handled without damage.
will be available for any SAQA member to use as a promotional tool for the
MA/RI SAQA region and my hope is that it will travel all around our
others as a way to promote SAQA, our region and our members.
Submission details for the trunk show:
Each piece must be 9”x 11” - unbound
please as the edges will not be visible and the piece will be mounted
on matboard. Please keep any dimensional embellishments at least 1"
from the edges. Include a one page ( 8 1/2” x 11” sheet of paper)
artist statement that has your name, the title of the piece, materials
and techniques used and any contact information or other information
about the piece you wish to include. Please also email a copy of this
statement to Sue at firstname.lastname@example.org
Send the artwork Sue Bleiweiss to (or bring it to a future SAQA regional meeting) Please
include $5.00 (make checks payable to SAQA) to cover the supplies needed to mount and frame the
Note that this is an open ongoing call for SAQA MA/RI members and there is no deadline to submit a piece for it.
If you've got your piece for the trunk show completed, send me a photo at email@example.com so I can spotlight it here on the blog.
