SAQA Trunk Show
Over 450 pieces of artwork in total!
SAQA’s traveling trunk shows are designed to showcase SAQA’s diversity of talent and support our mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.” This SAQA exhibition provides opportunities for viewing anywhere, from a meeting to an exhibition at local libraries or arts centers.
The 2017 Trunk Show will premiere at the SAQA Conference, April 27 - 30, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Following the conference, eight different trunks will travel to venues both in and out of the United States for up to three years. Each trunk allows audiences to engage with the quilts in an up-close and personal way.
The trunk show is a wonderful way to view and engage with quilts made using a wide variety of styles, techniques, and fibers. Some venues might want to organize special meetings around the trunk show and invite local quilt groups to view the works. Other venues 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.
Each quilt is 10 x 7 inches, 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.
