ARTQUILTSreminisce

April 22 – June 21, 2015
Page-Walker Arts & History Center, Cary, NC

Vacations with family, get-togethers with friends, and high school reunions are occasions when we indulge in sharing stories of our past. Vintage cars and old-fashioned clothes can remind us of events from way back when. Stumbling over memorabilia in the attic may evoke nostalgic feelings. Reading a poem or novel could trigger musings of joyful moments. Old photo albums, a favorite song, or the smell of a certain fragrance might even bring us back to a special place in time. We invite you to share memories of long ago or the not-so-distant past. Reminisce a little, then share with us your story in art quilt form.

That's A Quilt (Open to SAQA Northern CA and Northern Nevada regional members only)

Some of us call ourselves "Art Quilters," yet many of our quilting colleagues see little relationship between what we do and what they do. SAQA Northern (CA/NV) has been invited to show works that demonstrate both the connection to the quilt tradition and the innovation and experimentation that takes them into the realm of art. A range of materials, techniques, and presentations is encouraged.

The exhibit will include an Artist Statement describing how the work reflects, references or builds on quilt traditions and what is distinctly and intentionally different about the work, be it in materials, concept or technique, that moves it into the realm of art. What makes the viewer state, "THAT's a quilt?!"

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.
