SAQA Journal Member Gallery

I was delighted to learn that one of my pieces, Tuscany #5, has been included in the Spring/Summer 2012 edition of the SAQA Journal. SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) in as international group, with over 3000 members.


The piece is featured in the Member Gallery, with five works by other artists, all with the theme of Travel. The caption for my piece says, "Images from my photos of Tuscany have been collaged onto painted cloth, with stitch used to create textures of brick and stone. I was inspired by the fragmentary nature of experience and memory."

Ironically, the piece itself is now travelling, as part of SAQA's Synthesis II show, to various Canadian locations. Other works in this series can be found on my website.

Felicitations, Heather! Just double-checked my copy, and there it was. Of course, then I had to visit your website and blog. I very much like the way you interpret your surroundings. Je viens de Quebec aussi -- Huntingdon, SW of Montreal -- but in '75 I married a Vancouverite and have lived in Alberta since the fall of '76. Still get 'home' every 5 years or so, and I enjoy following artists from the Quebec textile world, on line.

Best for continued success!
