Sightlines: SAQA Exhibit

Sightlines Catalogue

There were other art quilt exhibits at IQF in Houston besides Creative Force ;^) The one that literally wrapped itself around the outside of Creative Force was Sightlines, curated by Virginia Spiegel. It was her vision to invite artists (14) who created "...a collection of artwork that was so strong and meaningful that the required continuous sightline would be subverted and assume secondary importance." The installation is VERY strong...and beautiful.

SAQA President Sandra Sider lead a gallery walk through Sightlines with many of the artists in attendance, offering their unique viewpoints about their work. Those attending were Sue Dennis Shelley Brenner Baird, Jayne Willoughby Scott, Kathy Nida, Pat Owoc, and Annie Helmericks-Louder.

An absolutely beautiful hardcover catalogue is a must in my opinion. It is available at the SAQA online store.
