Virtual Gallery Program

Both SAQA Global Exhibitions and the Virtual Gallery Program feature exceptional member art exhibitions.  Global Exhibitions have been, and will continue to be, hosted in premiere brick-and-mortar venues around the world.  The Virtual Gallery Program, made possible by SAQA’s new website, offers members an additional opportunity to present their work to the public. 

The Virtual Gallery Program enables SAQA to share the breadth and depth of art quilting with a new, digital audience via exhibitions crafted exclusively for online viewers.

 

How to Participate

Opportunities to submit your work to a Virtual Gallery are listed on SAQA Calls for Entry. Virtual galleries are not restricted by the requirements inherent in a brick-and-mortar venue, so any artwork may be shown that meets SAQA's definition of an art quilt.

There are no limits on the type of work that can be shown virtually. For example, work that is very large or very small (including an installation with a large footprint), contains complicated electronic components, cannot travel in a crate with other artwork, is too expensive to ship, or is otherwise not a good fit for a physical exhibit may be submitted for Virtual Galleries, as well as more standard 2D and 3D work.

Call for Volunteer Curators

The Virtual Gallery committee is actively seeking SAQA members to serve as volunteer exhibition curators. Every exhibition tells a story and the curator is the author of that narrative.

If your proposal is accepted, curators will work with the committee to:

  • develop an exhibition concept or theme
  • create an enticing call for entry
  • answer questions from members
  • build a compelling exhibit from the chosen images and statements submitted
  • write a curator’s statement to accompany the online exhibit.
