SAQA 25th Anniversary Trunk Show
This is SAQA’s third Trunk Show. Curated by Eileen Doughty, it was designed to showcase SAQA’s diversity of talent and its mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.”
Each quilt is 10 x 7 inches (25.4 x 17.8 cm), mounted on a black 12 x 9 inch backing board, and sealed inside a clear envelope. The artist's location, artwork title, statement and information about techniques and materials are on the back.
The trunk show is a wonderful way for members and non-members alike to view and engage with quilts made using a wide variety of styles, techniques, and fibers. Some regions might want to organize special meetings around the trunk show and invite local quilt groups to view the works. Other regions might want to use the trunk show as the basis for a critique session while still more might consider exhibiting the trunk show in their local libraries or art centers.
The 407 quilts are divided into 8 trunks, each containing 51 works of art (trunk G has 50). Each will travel a region of the world into 2017. Contact us if you would like to rent a trunk. TrunkShow@saqa.com
Fifty quilts from this exhibition were chosen by jurors B. J. Adams and Trudi Van Dyke to become a permanent part of the collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky. [list to be published in May]
