The Visioning Project group
is now hosted on a blog. If you are interested in joining, please contact Helen Conway
. The Visioning Project revolves around visualizing goals and dreams - and making them happen. By making a public commitment, the artist is inspired to achieve a specific goal. Some goals are very specific, such as gaining a private commission, getting gallery representation, or selling a work. Other goals are more developmental: building a cohesive body of work or producing work regularly. The Visioning Project members are wonderful in helping each other with support, networking, and resource information.
The SAQArtique group
is now also hosted on a blog. If you are interested in joining, please contact Martha Ginn
. The SAQArtique group is open to all SAQA members. Members trust in each other to make honest comments about the issues that they wish to have critiqued. The critiques are all in the spirit of a shared interest in quilting as an art form and improvement of each person's talents. The requirements for belonging to a group are simply that each member is expected to post at least one of her/his own works every 3 months and to participate in all critiques of other members' work.

| New Virtual Exhibit on SAQA Website
Betty Busby - "Primordium"
BJ wrote: "Rhythm is one of the basic principles of design. Add in repetition and variation. Like listening to jazz, when these things are handled well--as they are in these pieces--you can't stop swaying as you envelope yourself in each piece."
List of selected artists:
Marilyn M. Prucka
If you would like to volunteer to be a Virtual Gallery curator, please contact
|Jen Solon (Galleries@SAQA.com ) who organizes the Virtual Exhibitions.
|This is a Quilt! Trunk Shows available to travel
These three pieces are from Trunk Show F, which is in the Illinois & Wisconsin region this month:
Connie Horne - "Gladys" *** Sharon Wiley Hightower - "Pomegranate" *** Beatrice Hughes - "Conifers"
All of the pieces from all of the trunk shows are up on the SAQA website:
There are seven different trunk shows of small matted pieces. They are available to travel to your region any time through October 2013.
We hope that you will find venues where these wonderful gems can be displayed as a way to educate about our medium. Perhaps there's a library, community center, or art center in your town that has a display space. If you belong to a quilt guild, talk to the program chair about using this as a program. We can also arrange to send you our PowerPoint presentation that explains about art quilts and about SAQA. And it would be a great time to share your own artwork.
On the Trunk Show pages, you can search by Trunk Show letter (each Trunk Show has its own page) or by artist (through the index). At the bottom of each trunk show page, there is a Google calendar that shows where the trunk will be exhibited. When you click on the colored bar in the calendar, you will see details about each venue and dates.
A "Learn More" link explains what the trunk show is and a "Contact Us" link is above the calendar so that members or other interested parties can request a trunk viewing in their area. If you are interested in hosting a trunk show, please contact your regional rep.

Michigan State University Museum; Opening 2014
Additional venues will be added; work must be available to travel from 2014 through the end of December 2017
There are many stories of hope across the globe. Both individuals and small groups are working on projects that when added together make a positive impact on increasing the quality of life on this planet. Earth Stories will celebrate the stories of people or projects that enhance the planet, make a significant difference in restoring and/or protecting the environment, increase sustainability and otherwise improve the earth we all occupy.
25 artists from around the world will be chosen to interpret a "story" of their choice. Each artist will feature a project or person of their choice; the views presented by the artist do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of SAQA or MSU, neither of which endorses any person, project or organization.
Juror: Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi
Managing curator: Leni Levenson Wiener
Theme: Mental illness carries with it a stigma; many of us have experience with disorders, temporary or permanent, curable or not, that in the past and in some cultures even today would be labeled as crazy. That stigma can make it difficult to admit its effect on our loved ones or ourselves. Disorders as common as anxiety or depression, or less common, like schizophrenia or multiple personality disorder, can have a devastating effect on families and friends, and on ourselves. Negativity towards those who have these disorders often causes many people to keep the diagnosis hidden from friends and family.

Exhibition Name: Radical Elements
Our physical world is created out of the chemical elements, from hydrogen to platinum to arsenic. For this exhibit, each of the selected artists will create a new work that is influenced by an element from the periodic table. Inspirations can come from anything relating to that element, whether it is a play on the name, its color or the products made from it. Both representational and abstract works are welcomed.
As the second part of the Radical Elements theme, the artists will also be asked to move quilting beyond the usual materials of fabric and thread, exploring the function and decorative properties of different surfaces and stitching materials. This exhibit is the first to embrace the newly expanded definition of an art quilt and will be a signature exhibition for SAQA.
Curator: Jill Rumoshosky Werner
A special in-depth exhibition of the work of 6 artists at the museum of the International Quilt Study Center at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln from August 3, 2012 - February 24, 2013. Chosen artists will each exhibit several works.
