Colour with a U and Colour with a U Too (SAQA Regional)

Colour with a U is a juried exhibition of 35 art quilts and Colour with a U Too is a juried exhibition of 9 art quilts created by Canadian SAQA members.  In Canada, we spell colour with a “u”. We care about the “u”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. Forty-four artists have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical, and physical landscape.
