SAQA Benefit Auction kickoff

 It's time!  The SAQA Benefit auction begins tomorrow, 9/16/16, with Diamond Day bidding, an early bird opportunity to purchase any quilt for $1000.  Starting Monday at 2pm EDT, bidding on section 1 quilts starts, with prices at $750 and further reduced throughout the week until a final price of $100.  All proceeds benefit SAQA's exibitions, publications, and educational outreach.

River Dreams, which I made specifically for the auction, in included in the section 1 quilts.  It's a unique opportunity to own work of mine in a size format that I seldom visit.  It incorporates a lot of the elements I've been using in my ongoing series The River.

There's over 400 works available in the Benefit Auction, so there's sure to be something that catches your eye and speaks to you.  Details are on the SAQA site here, with lots of easily navigatible information.  The individual link to River Dreams is here.
