I’m sure everyone thinks that about the region they live in, but we’re going to challenge them to back it up!
New Fiber Art Venue
Our area has long been a hot bed of fiber art activity, and on the front range of Colorado we have the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, and significant fiber art represented in the Denver Art Museum.
In July those venues will be joined by a new facility in Cedar City, Utah. Located on the campus of Southern Utah University, the Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA) is a brand new, state-of-the-art laboratory museum. All the details about the facility and it’s creation can be found on their website here: https://www.suu.edu/pva/suma/
Even better than this new, amazing space, they have announced a call for entries for a new Art Quilt Biennial show with the theme of “Pathfinders: New Territories”.
The complete details of that call can be found here: https://www.suu.edu/pva/suma/exhibits/pathfinders.html
We’re very excited to have this new facility in our region!
Did you know that SAQA has a mentoring program that puts mentors and mentees together?
Mentors are fellow SAQA members who have volunteered to share their experiences with you and help you stay on track to whatever your goals may be.
The full details of this program can be found on the SAQA website: http://www.saqa.com/memberArt.php?ID=3369
Contemporary Fiber 2016
Carol Ann Waugh has announced that the Niza Knoll gallery in the Santa Fe Art District of Denver will be the site of this exhibit.
Fiber art of all kinds are welcome, and artists from Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico are eligible to submit work.

Betty Busby, a SAQA JAM from our neighboring New Mexico region has a solo exhibit titled On and Off the Wall that will be in the Boulder Dairy Center for the Arts July 1-31.
Betty brings years of experimental work in fiber to this exhibition. Inspired by natural fractal forms, the work includes both wall pieces and freestanding sculptures.
