Art Quilt Exhibit
Poetry and art have been inextricably linked for as long as they have both been in existence—one illuminating the other and requiring the use of multiple senses, each breathing life into each other. Powerful combinations are created when the two art forms come together in thought-provoking ways.
To create the Blending Poetry & Cloth exhibit, artists were required to reference a piece of poetry, song, or quotation in creating their composition. Seventy SAQA Oregon members entered the competition, jurored by Patricia Clark, founder of Atelier 6000 Print Workshop in Bend, Oregon.
The resulting exhibit demonstrates not only the scope of artistic vision among Oregon SAQA members but also the consistent level of high achievement in the use of quilting as an art medium. The exhibit will be on display in Hannon Library’s Meese Room (LIB305) beginning April 4 through April 12.
The Studio Art Quilt Associates is an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting art quilting and the artists that create these unique artworks. SAQA is an information resource on all things art quilt related for association members as well as the public.
Founded in 1989 by an initial group of 50 artists, SAQA members now number more than 3,400 artists, teachers, collectors, gallery owners, museum curators, and corporate sponsers.
