HABITAT: Fiber Art by Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA)
May 7–June 18, 2021

This Fiber Art exhibit features an exquisite collection of juried quilts from the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). Assembled around the theme of “Habitat”, the artists have manifested life-supporting spaces in fiber art exploring the real and physical to the ethereal and imagined. SAQA began in 1989 to represent fiber artists and to further quilting as an art form.

The Rogue Gallery & Art Center is proud to host Studio Art Quilt Associates, Oregon Region. Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt: “a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure.” Members of SAQA create fiber works of exceptional quality and originality. Displayed works demonstrate the artists’ mastery of the fiber medium, as well as the inventive ways they interpret the exhibit them of “Habitat”. The quilts include abstract and geometric patterns, lyrical landscapes, and playful designs. Quilts vary from the contemplative and meditative to quilts that are more playful and are energized with rhythmic movement.
