A Sense of Place:
Texas Landscape Art Quilts

January 22 - May 21, 2022

From above or below, from far or near, Texas geography, geology and landforms inspire artists with the diversity, grandeur, mystery, and complexity that unrolls from the Gulf to the Staked Plains to the Borderlands and the Hill Country.

This exhibit presents an exploration of the vast Texas landscape by artists working in the art quilt form ranging from representational to abstract styles. The work examines our human attachment to specific places, and what makes those places meaningful and unique. This exhibit aims to provide its audience with a more in-depth understanding of the range of expression and processes of the art quilt form.

This exhibition consists of work created by SAQA members in Texas. Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.

Addressing the Moment: The Artist's Voice

January 15 - March 5, 2022

Large-scale paintings created by emerging Black artists in Wilmington, Delaware, were originally painted and installed on the boarded-up storefronts of a main street in the city’s downtown area.

The boards went up on the windows all over Wilmington’s downtown area on May 31st, 2020, just hours after the national civil unrest over the murder of George Floyd. The works were commissioned by Jonathan Whitney and Eliza Jarvis of Flux Creative Consulting and Joe Del Tufo of Moonloop Photography. The three organizers sought to find a way to commemorate that moment in time and give Black artists a blank canvas on which to express themselves.

Artists James Wyatt, Jaquanne LeRoy, Jannah Williams, Erica Jones and E. Lize completed works that were on view downtown for several months and gained widespread press as word spread across the nation.
