Declaration of Sentiments--Paducah Fall 2017

The SAQA Regional Exhibit Declaration of Sentiments debuted at the Fall AQS Show in Paducah. This exhibition celebrates women's accomplishments and honors their struggles throughout American history. Whether abstract, graphic, and representational artists' voices illustrating the passion, anger, hope, perseverance, or celebration of women's rights is relevant and important. 

I hope, if the exhibit comes to a place near you, you will take the time to check out the entire exhibit. 

Here are a few of the quilts (and their stories). Enjoy. (If you need to, you can click on the picture to enlarge it.)







 


These quilts and all the others in the exhibit will travel for a couple of years. I know the exhibit will be shown at AQS Quiltweek in Des Moines, IA (October 4-7, 2017) and at the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show in Bloomington, IN (March 1-3, 2018). Other venues are in the process of being scheduled.

Some of these seem to be 3D. Interesting. Quite the statement all.

Such a great variety of materials and of subjects. Thanks for sharing these. I'm not likely to get anywhere near a place where they are shown. I'm happy you got to go to Paducah!
