Congratulations to the artists selected for Light the World

Congratulations to the artists selected for the SAQA Global Exhibition Light the World by juror Jan Myers-Newbury. This exhibition will premiere at the European Patchwork Meeting, Sainte-Marie-Aux-Mines, France in September 2021.

Light is our primary tool for perceiving and understanding the world around us. Without light there is no vision. Light allows us to appreciate the world through shape and form and evokes emotions. Common qualities of light are intensity, quality, color, direction, distribution, texture and movement. Artists were encouraged to explore how light creates and transforms their art.
