Masters 2 Information for Venues
In our sixth year of offering traveling exhibitions throughout the world, SAQA is very pleased to present our newest fiber art show: Masters 2, premiering in November 2011. In 2008, Lark Books added a new publication to its Master Works series, Masters: Art Quilts, written and curated by Martha Sielman, the Executive Director of Studio Art Quilt Associates. It quickly became one of the most successful selling books in the Lark series. SAQA traveled the accompanying exhibition of art quilts throughout the United States to rave reviews.
The 37 quilt artists included in the exhibition have proven themselves to be masters of this exciting art form, and hail from from all over the globe. The artworks encompass a broad range of fiber art techniques and styles, from realistic to abstract. The subject matter varies from a study of Miles Davis intent on blowing his horn to an homage to New York City’s wrought iron tree gates.
Masters 2 will provide a provocative and stimulating museum experience. Please consider hosting this exhibition that will impress artists and collectors alike with the versatility and innovation displayed in the work. As with all of our exhibitions, this one will draw enthusiastic crowds and bring increased press coverage and revenue to your venue. SAQA members who live in your area can provide educational docent training, workshops, and lectures to support the exhibition’s run. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have about Masters 2 and other SAQA exhibitions.
Large images of each artwork will be posted when made available by the publisher
