The SAQA Musings Exhibit has been on display since June 19 at the Gerald R. Ford Musesum in Grand Rapids. The exhibit includes 29 quilts from across the United States and runs thru August 31, 2009. The selected artists for Musings are:
Susan Sanborn North
Tracy McCabe Stewart
So if you are looking for an art quilt exhibit to visit this summer in Michigan, look no further then the Musings Exhibit at the Gerald Ford Presidential Museum. Along with the quilt exhibit you can also see Caroline Kennedy's doll collection. These dolls were given to Caroline from visitors to the White House from all over the world. The Museum is also full of treasures from the White House and items given to the Ford family.
The Museum is located at 303 Pearl Street in downtown Grand Rapids and is open every day 9 to 5. For directions and more information on the museum you can visit their web site here.

The SAQA Michigan newsletter will be taking a sabbatical! In its place, we'd like to welcome you to the SAQA Michigan blog!
The best way to provide members immediate access to information about exhibit opportunities, announcements of upcoming events and other endeavors is by the creation of our own blog. With this venue we will be able to maintain links to SAQA members living and working in Michigan. In addition, our members can view SAQA news, member's accomplishments, and be kept informed of venues and exhibits where you can see SAQA artists' work in person.
This is your regional blog and will only be as good as the information you provided to us. So keep us informed of any news, events, corrections, etc. by emailing Robbie Payne at SAQAMI@aol.com. This is a free service to all members in our region, so take advantage of this technology tool for promoting our art.
The Button-Petter Gallery represents over 80 artists both regional and national in reputation. With the Saugatuck-Douglas area being known as the 'Art Coast of Michigan' this is a great weekend get-away. You'll get to see some of Sue's wonderful textile work along with other art forms already on exhibit. For further information on the gallery and exhibits, check out their web site at Button-Petter Gallery.
