Opening Preview, Monday 1 July 5:30 - 7pm. All Welcome.
This is a juried exhibition of 32 art quilts created by members of the Studio Art Quilt
Associates (SAQA) Oceania region. SAQA is an international non-profit organisation dedicated
to promoting the art quilt and the artists who create them. The Oceania region includes Australia, New Zealand and expatriate members.
The exhibition explores the many interpretations of connection, from relationships to physical bonds, the simple state of feeling connected, and how we connect in difficult circumstances with ideas or people who are different or unlike ourselves. The theme provides a
focus and opportunity for a wide range of responses using contemporary fibre are medium. The
work is diverse, challenging the boundaries of quilting and encouraging conversation and dialogue about the use of quilting as an art form.
