Textile Talks: Haven

Conversations with the Artists

Artist talks with three artists from SAQA Global Exhibition Haven!

Words and communication continue to be Jette Clover’s primary source of inspiration. Instead of writing with a pen or printing text segments, she is ‘writing’ with a needle on fabric. This process has created an even closer relationship between writing and textile.

Helen Geglio will focus on her recent work exploring ideas about protection and how she has discovered the protective nature of slowly making stitches by hand.

Anne Bellas’ art is mostly abstract, focusing on nonfigurative designs, surface design techniques, and bold colors. In these times of pandemic and economic and political instability, Anne’s goal is to lead her viewers through open windows, hoping they can experience a feeling of well-being, serenity, and inner peace.
