Musica! (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
National Quilt Museum

Both music and art can elicit emotion, create mood, evoke images, suggest movement, as well as reflect light, depth, and color. Artists are encouraged to explore the ways in which music can serve as inspiration for the creative process. Artwork may be two or three dimensional, viewed from one side, two sides, or any angle.

Aloft (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
AQS 2020 - various locations

Insects, birds and even some mammals are able to fly or soar. Plant seeds are carried on breezes and by birds, while a soccer ball can fly down the field. Humankind has found ways to fly from Icarus’ attempt to create his own wings to the advent of mechanized flight, satellites, space exploration and cameras on drones that give us a new perspective on our world.

Opposites Attract (SAQA Global - All members)More Info
Australasian Quilt Convention - April 2020

Opposing forces shape our reality in ways which are both readily apparent as well as hidden. Artwork included in this exhibit will explore a contradiction or an affinity, Yin and Yang, the irresistible force versus the immovable object and other "opposites."

Ebb & Flow (SAQA Global - ALL members) More Info
Quilt Festival Houston - October 2020

Many things in life and history demonstrate a recurring pattern of cycles and change, of growth and decline. From movements in history to the phases of our lives, the seasons, the position of the stars and planets, conversations, even the progression of a piece of music or literature, artists are invited to explore Ebb and Flow in a two-dimensional artwork.

Beyond the Mirror (SAQA Global - ALL members)More Info
Quilt Festival Houston - October 2020

In this digital age, we cannot escape our own images, whether taken as a selfie or found on social media. Does our image reflect our individual identity or do we see what we are conditioned by society to see? We need to look beyond the mirror to see our strength of character, intelligence, creativity, skills and our potential to be even more than what can be reflected.
