I almost forgot — Studio Art Quilt Associates is starting their annual Art Auction today! The piece I donated is on page one and is available starting today.
Last year’s auction was wildly successful. I am happy to support SAQA, and even though I have not maximized my opportunities this year, I’ve still gained much as a member through their quarterly Journal, an online discussion group, exhibition opportunities, and even a critique group. Monies from the auction go towards exhibitions, catalogs (many artists enter only those shows that publish a catalog), and outreach programs for the following year.
Go, check it out, and if you see something you like — bid on it! The piece I donated last year was bought pretty quick, so don’t hold your breath waiting for a piece to get down to the $50 price.
