Textiles in Translation: presented by Studio Art Quilt Associates of Pennsylvania

June 4, 2020 @ 10:00 am - July 23, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Textiles in Translation is a collection of fiber-based artwork by Pennsylvania regional members of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). The juried exhibit will showcase a wide range of 2D and 3D fiber art and highlight a diverse range of styles and techniques.

Fiber work stretches back to ancient times and has grown and developed across the centuries into a vibrant art form, encompassing a variety of materials and processes from low to high tech. Today’s fiber artists create beauty, provoke thought, resist convention, and challenge the status quo. The work in this show helps to reinforce fiber art’s unique place in the world of contemporary art.

The artists with work included in the exhibition are members of SAQA, an active and dynamic nonprofit international organization of over 3,500 members that promotes fiber art and the artists who create it through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation, and publications. SAQA mounts museum-quality exhibitions that travel the world. The Gallery at Penn College hosted SAQA Pennsylvania’s exhibition, Connected by Stitch, in 2016.

Reception Sat, June 6, 2 – 5 p.m.
Gallery talk at 3 p.m.
