SAQA exhibition on display at QuiltCon 2018
Don't forget to stop by the SAQA booth at QuiltCon!
We love to meet our members and other art quilt lovers. We will also have great products for sale including the Golden Hour fat quarter bundles, Modern Inspirations catalog, and the latest issue of Art Quilt Quarterly.
SAQA members are invited to meet up at the booth on Saturday at noon and join Lisa Ellis on a tour of the Modern Inspirations exhibition.
About the Exhibition
This exhibition includes 30 iconic historic and contemporary quilts by artists from around the world, selected by The Modern Quilt Guild.
The Art Quilt and Modern Quilt movements, two important developments in the continuum of quilt and art history, are deeply interwoven. Modern quilt makers have brought a fresh new aesthetic to contemporary quilt making. With references to art and quilt history, it is not surprising that many characteristics of modern quilts are also found in art quilts from the 1970s to the present.
