SAQA Montana/Idaho Regional Trunk Showcase

This is a showcase for our Montana/Idaho SAQA Regional Members and members who have selected the MT/ID region as their second region. The purpose of this show is to present the diversity of our member artist’s talent and support SAQA’s mission to “promote the art quilt.” The trunk allows audiences to engage with the quilts in an up-close and personal way.    

Each quilt will be mounted on a black backing board and sealed inside a clear envelope. The artist's location, artwork title, statement and information about techniques and materials are featured on the back.

“Stitching Stories/Telling Tales”

This is your story. It can be from your memory, your dream, a personal inspiration, a special person, a funny story or any other “story” that you love and choose to share through your art.

Beginning Call: August 7, 2020
Entry Deadline: October 1, 2020
