Congratulations to the artists selected for Connections!

Congratulations to the artists selected for the SAQA Global Exhibition Connections by juror Ellen M. Blalock. This exhibition is scheduled to debut at the International Quilt Festival in Houston in October. 

In today's fractured, divisive world, connections - both intentional and accidental - are more important than ever. We are bound by love, rituals, family and faith. We are also connected to our past, our community - near and far, and to nature. To be connected is to find commonalities with others.
