SAQA Texas Quilters: October 28, 2021 – January 9, 2022
"A Sense Of Place: Texas Landscape Art Quilts"
From above or below, from far or near, abstracted or hyper-photographic, Texas geography, geology and landforms inspire artists with the diversity, grandeur, mystery and complexity that unrolls from the Gulf to the Staked Plains to the Borderlands and the Hill Country. Artists were invited to explore their emotional connections with landscape themes, and to push the boundaries of what constitutes landscape art.
Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt: "a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure."
Over the past 30 years, SAQA has grown into a dynamic and active community of nearly 4,000 artists, curators, collectors, and art professionals located around the world. Their vision is that the art quilt is universally respected as a fine art medium.
With their exhibitions, resources, publications, and membership opportunities, SAQA seeks to increase the public's appreciation for the art quilt and to support their members in their artistic and professional growth.
