The Art Quilt Movement—Innovation & Change Over 50 Years
Saturday November 2 (11am - noon)
Fifty years has changed many elements of the quilting industry and the Art Quilt Movement has changed right along with it. Sielman provides a look into this movement which has grown to embrace thousands of makers. She features the work of artists worldwide — Jean Ray Laury, Nancy Crow, Michael James, Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry, Katie Pasquini Masopust — and spotlights SAQA’s Gallery on the show floor, “Layered & Stitched: 50 Years of Innovative Art.”
