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

June 1 @ 10:00 am - July 22 @ 5:00 pm EDT

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.
Textiles in Translation is juried by Susan Szajer, a full-time mixed media
artist living in New Mexico who enjoys both the spontaneous nature of
painting and the challenge of textiles. She finds joy in pushing artwork to
the edge while still maintaining good design, composition, and attention to
detail. The exhibit is curated by former SAQA Pennsylvania Regional
Representative, Meredith Eachus Armstrong.
Virtual events will be announced on the gallery website and Facebook.
Gallery Hours (Summer): Sunday: 1 – 4 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday:
