SAQA Nebraska is excited to offer a FREE workshop in January. We are teaming up with Holly Hackwith, AM ISA, of Corporate Art Co to provide you with the opportunity to update your Bio and/or Artist Statement(s). In addition to Holly’s experience as an art appraiser, she has experience as a juror, and understands how important these two pieces of information can be for an artist to better express their process and goal.
LOCATION: OMAHA — due to venue restrictions, space is limited. RSVP required.
DATE: January 12, 2013 11am-1pm

For many SAQA members, entering shows is no mystery. But for those of you
starting down the road of entering your work into juried shows, I am doing a
series of posts on the process. Part of it is just my experience, but for
the last year I have been on the exhibition committee for SAQA and am
learning a lot more from the inside. If you are new to entering juried
shows and have questions, maybe you will find the answers on my blog:

Margie Trembley, Omaha, recently gave two lectures on Japanese Surface Design Techniques. One was for the Heritage Needlearts Guild in Nebraska City and the other was in Conway, Arkansas for the Regional Saqa meeting.
She will be showing indigo pieces and sharing info on Indigo at the Quilt Study Center in Lincoln, Ne during their fundraiser on Sept 28, 2012.
Lauritzen Garden Guild is hosting their Annual Quilt Show this November 9-11. We are looking for individuals who would like to display, or sell their quilts for fiber art work at the Quilt Show.
Also, we are presenting 9 “Quilts of Valor” on Sunday, November 11, Veteran’s Day. It is a very touching ceremony. The Guild would like to invite you and your family to come and pay tribute to our veterans that day. It would be a great afternoon to bring a veteran you may know, or your children/grandchildren.
Thank you for your time, and consideration,
President Lauritzen Gardens Guild 2012
