The Organic Landscape, as part of the SAQA exhibit Seasonal Palette, is on exhibit at the Festival Internacional de Patchwork e Arts Afins, Curitiba, Brazil, August 27 - 30, 2014.
The exhibit is a juried invitational, with artists creating work specifically for the theme and addressing one of the four seasons. My work, The Organic Landscape, references summer, and depicts some of the ornamental plants I grow in my organic gardens. Each artist was also asked to keep an artist journal of their inspirations and working process, and the journals are exhibited along with the works. You can see the works online here, and the journals here. If you are at all interested in process the journals are well worth your time to read. There is also an excellent hardcover catalog of the works available here.
SAQA—Studio Art Quilt Associates—continues to improve their exhibition process and is consistently mounting great shows and marketing them extensively. I am very grateful to the organization at large and the the curators of Seasonal Palette, Vicki Mangum and Kathleen McCabe, for the work they have done. It is complicated and can be difficult to exhibit work overseas, and this is providing me with opportunities I would be hard pressed to duplicate on my own. Below is the list of all the venues, past and future, for Seasonal Palette; if any of them are near to you, I hope you have the chance to view it.
