Microscape (SAQA Global Exhibition)

Our known world stretches far beyond what we can see with the unaided eye. Microscopes, magnifying glasses, and virtual imaging techniques reveal a world of great beauty and complexity. That world contains the smallest particles, tiniest organisms, smallest landscape, or natural details and can provide us with an abundance of artistic inspiration.

Artists were encouraged to explore a corner of the world at high magnification, capturing tiny wonders at the microscopic level, or by zooming in on a larger object to show its smallest details. 

Premiere Exhibition Location
International Quilt Festival, Houston, Texas, October 2021
