People & Portraits (SAQA Global Exhibition)

This exhibition celebrates the expressiveness of the human face. The diverse designs focus on a variety of both emotional states and the ways in which people interact: contemplation, joy, community, work and play.  Based on the companion book, Art Quilt Portfolio: People and Portraits, the exhibition shows two works by each of the book's 20 Featured Artists.

This exhibition is made possible through the generosity of AQS, Lark Crafts, and the National Quilt Museum.  

Invitational curator: Martha Sielman, Managing curator: Pat Kumicich
