Exhibition Venues 

SAQA exhibitions travel to a wide variety of venues across the world. Increasingly, many exhibitions are now marketed to regional museums and university galleries, so they can travel and be seen by more people in more places. In 2014, over a quarter million of people viewed a SAQA show!

One of SAQA's goals is to place our members’ work into more of these high profile art venues, while still retaining a presence in well known quilt venues in the US and abroad. With increased exposure, we hope to offer our members ever expanding opportunities to show their work and build exhibition resumes.
