about

IMAGINATION 1X4

The exhibition Imagination: 1 x 4 presents the work of 50 artist members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) from the Washington, DC, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina regions.

 

Each participating fiber artist was invited to use their imagination to escape reality, explore thoughts and feelings, and express themselves by creating a new quilt in a format measuring one foot wide by four feet high.

 

The imaginative, innovative and inspired art quilts on display were selected by juror Maggie Vanderweit, an internationally recognized quilter and SAQA board member.

 

The wide range of quilts feature both traditional and experimental materials and textile techniques which include hand dyeing, surface design, piecing, machine and hand quilting, sewing and embroidery.
