SAQA Artists @ Art Quilt Elements

Art Quilt Elements is a highly selective biennial held at the Wayne Art Center located in Wayne, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia. The exhibition runs from March 16 – April 28, 2018. This year’s show is exceptional and features the artwork of many of our SAQA members.


In conjunction with Art Quilt Elements, the Pennsylvania SAQA region, led by Peggy Hracho and Meredith Armstrong, held a one day Symposium as part of the opening weekend activities. Attendees enjoyed a day filled with informative presentations and connected with other fiber artists.

Along with the Symposium, there was a fiber bombing in the front of the center.

The opening and the symposium were well attended.

SAQA member Cindy Friedman has been active in making this exhibition happen for twenty years. The Wayne Art Center is known for its excellent exhibition space.


Here are just a few pieces of the selected pieces. If you would like to see all the pieces in the exhibition, the Wayne Art Center has a beautiful slide show of all the quilts.
