Quilts in SAQA Store

State of (WA)ter


SAQA WA Region is pleased to be mounting its first regional exhibition, the State of WA(ter). Although nearly 5,000 square miles of our state are covered in water, the landscapes of the western and eastern regions could hardly be more different. Washington is a state shaped by extremes of water: the cool, rainy West contrasts vividly with the dry, more climatically severe East. Dividing the East from the West is the dramatic Cascade mountain range, itself a setting for a plethora of lakes, rivers, and glaciers. 

We invited quilt artists in the Washington region to interpret these extremes of water, either by representing the character of water in the east or the west, or in the mountainous region between. Works that illustrate or celebrate the contrast between both regions will be included.
