Oregon Region


Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Oregon region is pleased to present a group exhibition of new works interpreting the concept of ‘Bridge’. The exhibit features the work of 25 fiber artists from across Oregon. The art is inspired by the broadest concept of Bridge:
Oregon is a state filled with bridges ranging from the mythological Bridge of the Gods to the contemporary Tilikum Crossing. The concept of “Bridge”, though, is much broader. A bridge can be the symbolic image of chrysalis to butterfly. Bridges are a connection and a link. They are bonds and pathways—both physical and emotional—between people and things. A bridge joins and unites. It spans time and traverses space. It reconciles differences creating harmony. It represents progress, stability, hope and transition. We invited artists to submit work that reflects the theme of “Bridge” either in a representational or abstract interpretation.

The concept is executed by the artists using a diverse range of fiber techniques. The exhibition was juried by Jane Dunnewold.
