Valentine Give Away!
Sure, you'd like to have some chocolate for Valentine's Day but how about one of SAQA's catalogs instead!
Our February give away is the SAQA catalog, Transformations 2008: Icons & Imagery.
The following is a description from the Transformations 2008 exhibit:
Each of the artist members of Studio Art Quilt Associates who are represented in Transformations 2008: Icons and Imagery used the idea of an icon, with its ability to elicit symbolic meaning beyond the object represented, as a starting point for the quilts in this exhibit. German textile expert Rudolf Smend, who served as the sole juror of Transformations 2008, chose work he felt "focused primarily on artistic originality, perfect craftsmanship and innovation," while providing a new take on the meaning of iconography through the use of fresh imagery and interpretations. Transformations 2008: Icons and Imagery, is composed of 32 quilts from nine countries, traveled to South Africa and the United States after opening in the UK.
This catalog contains 72 pages including the juror's essay, full and detail images and artists' statements. You'll find some great inspiration from this catalog.
