Piecing Together a Changing Planet (Florida Regional Exhibit)

Rising sea levels, melting glaciers, stranded animals, collapsing buildings, raging fires, intense storms, disrupted migrations, drying lakes, bleaching corals.

The global climate IS changing, and manifestations of that change are abundant in some of America's most treasured places, her National Parks. The diversity of impacts is as varied as the parks themselves, from Glacier and Great Smoky Mountains to the Statue of Liberty and remote Alaskan native villages. SAQA Florida and Biscayne National Park invite you to interpret climate change in textiles for an exhibit that will travel to some of the very places depicted in the artwork.

Food For Thought (All members)

We eat every day, but how often do we really think about the food we eat? Every culture has its celebrations, family meals, traditions that involve food. Although these vary in different parts of the world, the impact of food is unmistakable. Food nourishes and fuels our bodies; food traditions nurture our souls.

So, what inspires you about food?

This exhibition will allow artists to explore any aspects of food that they find inspirational – from a single piece of fruit, to a still life, to the family table, to the significance of food in culture and the celebration of family milestones and religious holidays. Artists may portray how and where food is grown and harvested; how it is sold or distributed, prepared or consumed; where it is abundant and where it is scarce.

Balancing Act (All members)

Throughout history, women have had to balance responsibilities to community, home and family while pursuing other interests, jobs or careers. From those who helped farm the land to those who worked the factories during wartime, to those who stand shoulder to shoulder with men to pursue careers, and those who serve as caregivers; women have always had to juggle the various aspects of their lives—often without the same respect or recognition given to men. This show celebrates women both throughout history and today--and is open to any interpretation each artist feels inspired to depict. What have we accomplished that we now enjoy as rights and freedoms that our grandmothers and their grandmothers did not? What obstacles are left to conquer? We encourage both representational and abstract work.
