Beyond the Mirror (SAQA Global Exhibition)

What do you see when you look in the mirror? In this digital age, we cannot escape our own images, whether taken as a selfie or found on social media. Does our image reflect our individual identity or do we see what we are conditioned by society to see? We need to look beyond the mirror to see our strength of character, intelligence, creativity, skills, and our potential to be even more than what can be reflected.

About the Juror

Andra F. Stanton, a retired psychotherapist, writes about fiber art and fabric manipulation in Boulder, Colorado. Her books explore fiber art and other art forms, especially art quilting, surface design, mixed media, and dimension composition.

Currently working on her next publication, Art of Connection:  How Art Heals, Stanton’s richly illustrated book addresses the various issues of making and viewing art, and its effect on an individual’s physical and mental health.

Stanton, whose own artwork is based on her psychological responses to physical challenges, believes the best way to find comfort is by contributing to the story of humanity through friendship, altruism, curiosity, and creativity, and celebrating those whose art lifts us all.
