I wrote a blog post about having a quilt juried into the Form, Not Function Exhibit at The Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, IN. You can check that out here. Today, I had a chance to revisit the exhibit with the SAQA IN (Studio Art Quilt Associates, Indiana). First, we met for lunch at The Exchange Pub & Kitchen in New Albany. From there, we took a quick look at the exhibit and headed to a meeting room for a SAQA IN meeting. (We did go back and spend a bit more time viewing the exhibit after the meeting.) What a nice day!
SAQA IN was well represented in this exhibit. Emily Bogard has a piece in the exhibit called “Layla the Layered Layer.” Her piece was given the Award of Excellence in Memory of Textile Artist Alma Lesch. Her piece is made of canvas, screen, recycled fabric, men’s ties, paper, and thread. It is placed above an air register, so the “feathers” constantly flutter. (I told Emily today that it is just the perfect place for the piece.)
Sandra Palmer Ciolino’s “Precaria #8: Crucible” (on the left)was chosen for an Award of Excellence as was Paulette Landers’ “The Ups & Downs of Uncertainty (on the right).”
