Art as Quilt
Member Work Sells at Highfield Hall & Gardens
Artist Reception Upcoming
Art as Quilt: Transitions in Contemporary Textile Media is a juried regional exhibition of contemporary textile media that explores the subject of art as quilt. The word quilt implies a traditional three layered stitched approach but artists were encouraged to explore new and innovative ways to push beyond these boundaries through the use of techniques and materials. This exhibit consists of works that represent unique approaches and interpretations of the theme and help illustrate the diversity of styles, techniques, and materials being used by the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) members. Showcasing the work of 29 SAQA members representing both the MA/RI and CT SAQA regions, this exhibition premiered at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA in October of 2015.
Art as Quilt has traveled to Highfield Hall & Gardens in Falmouth, MA for two months, opening to the public on April 15, 2016 through June 19, 2016. In a pre-opening event for all Highfield Hall's members, two of the shows 33 works have already sold. Congratulations to both Christina Blais and Ann Brauer, whose work will be moving into private collections at the end of the exhibit's run.
