A Sense of Place: Texas Landscape Art Quilts
January 22 - May 21
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.
