"Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), the world's largest organization of international quilt artists, is premiering 'Metaphors on Ageing'. The 37 artists whose work is included in this exhibition hail from the United States, Canada, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Japan and Taiwan.
"Ageing affects everyone in many different ways. We age, as do our parents, our children, our friends. Our bodies age; our minds age. Through the use of a wide variety of visual metaphors, these works show the impact of aging on our lives: three generations sharing a cup of tea, a decaying leaf, the effects of rust on fibre, an empty chair. These powerful images will draw you in and change how you think."
