Susie Monday will present the brand new, just launched 2017 Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Trunk Show. Susie will be bringing the quilts back with her from the 2017 SAQA conference in Lincoln, NB. We’ll pass around the art quilts and, at each table will have a mock mini exhibit curating activity, learning a bit about how jurors might select work for a show. This activity will give us all experience in looking at composition, color, value and content of art quilts.
SAQA’s traveling Trunk Shows are designed to showcase SAQA’s diversity of talent and its mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications.”
The 2017 Trunk Show will premiere at the 2017 SAQA Conference, April 27 – 30, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Following the conference, the exhibit will travel to venues both in and out of the United States for up to three years.
The trunk show is a wonderful way to view and engage with quilts made using a wide variety of styles, techniques, and fibers. Each quilt is 10 x 7 inches, mounted on a black 12 x 9 inch backing board, and sealed inside a clear envelope. The artist’s location, artwork title, statement and information about techniques and materials are on the back.

Susie will also talk a little about SAQA, show its website, and explain the benefits of membership in this international organization.
