SAQA Trunk Show

SAQA Trunk Show:

I hope you are all planning to make a piece for the trunk show.  As you recall, these are small pieces, 7″ wide x 10″ long and can be any style you want to create.  They are broken into trunk shows that travel all around the world!

There is added incentive for each member in our region to create a piece.  At the conference, to be held in our own region in Lincoln, they will display the trunk show pieces by region. To create some friendly rivalry, there is prize for participation!  To encourage this the region with the highest percentage of participation will get $250 towards a regional event!

Wouldn’t it be great to have $250 to bring in a speaker or have a workshop?   We are a small region I know, but it is a “highest percentage” deal, so if the SAQA auction piece participation is any indication, I think we have a real chance at the prize!!  Please consider making a piece. They need to be entered on line at the SAQA website by November 30, 2016, so now is the time to move on this!

Here are the particulars:

2017 SAQA TRUNK SHOW   •   SAQA Artists On Tour: An up close and personal view on art quilts

Deadline:  November 30, 2016

Join SAQA as we create another amazing Trunk Show. SAQA is inviting its members to showcase their artistic expression by creating a 10″ x 7″ art quilt or, on a limited basis, 3-D Artwork for our upcoming traveling Trunk Show.

Have fun exploring a new subject, developing a technique, or working with an idea or concept with which you are already familiar. Whatever you decide, enjoy yourself!

The 2017 Trunk Show will premiere at the 2017 SAQA Conference, April 27 – 30, 2017 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Following the conference, the exhibit will travel to venues both in and out of the United States for up to three years.

Let’s see if we can bring home the prize!  And if we don’t win, not to worry, you will be sharing your art at venues all over the world, a great goal in itself.
