My Corner of the World (SAQA Global Exhibition)

My Corner of the World invited the artist to examine a world, real or imagined, that represented what is important in life. It might be where the artist resides, works, or grew up. It might be a favorite place from any point in life or a special internal place. My Corner of the World looks at the big picture including, but not limited to a homeland, ancestry or culture.

Juror: Micaela Fitzsimmons

Micaela Fitzsimmons is the Manager of Collections and Exhibits at the Stratford Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario. In addition to developing exhibits on the history and culture of this eclectic community, at once a rural agricultural community as well as a renowned centre of artistic culture, she cares for the museum’s collection which includes a significant number of heritage quilts.

An award-winning printmaker and textile artist, her own work is an exploration of juxtapositions and repetition, and is often focused on social justice themes. She has exhibited in juried and group shows across Ontario, as well as in international travelling exhibitions. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Great Lakes Quilt Center at the Michigan State University Museum.
