SAQA Exhibit in Little Rock, Arkansas

Color Bars #2 (Black)
36.5" x 22"
I just shipped my entry (above) to the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) Regional Exhibition of Contemporary Art Quilts at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock, AR. The exhibit is in the Main Library Gallery at the Butler Center, in the River Market area in downtown Little Rock. The opening on Friday, March 14 from 5:00-8:00 will be a part of the Second Friday Art Walk when other businesses stay open for the public. The exhibit runs through Sunday, May 25. Twelve artists' works will be displayed in the exhibit. See the invitation below.

Juror for the exhibit is Paula Kovarik of Memphis, and she will give the keynote address, "Transitions" at the Conference on Saturday, March 15. The conference opens at 9:00 with time to meet and greet, followed by the keynote address, breakout sessions, catered lunch, door prizes, and critique session by the Juror. We hope to acquaint more people with SAQA and art quilts. Registration (including lunch) is $20 for SAQA members, $25 for non-members. To register, contact regional rep Deborah Kuster at

Meanwhile, my three new kittens are settling right in. Ramona has given her wholehearted approval of the new website our web designer Holly Knott is  creating for Pine Belt Quilters.

Martha, you are one busy cat/quilt artist! The kittens are beautiful, and I can only imagine how funny they are playing together. Congratulations on being juried into the SAQA exhibit!

The cat photo is classic. Maybe Holly should put it on her website under "testimonials."

Jeanne, thanks! I'm looking forward to the SAQA regional exhibit and conference in Little Rock, but will miss the one in DC in May. Find an ice cream shop while you're out walking and remember the visit in Santa Fe!

Ellen, glad you liked the kitty pic; Holly has put it on her Facebook page. I must say Ramona has a lot of input while I'm working at the computer. All three kittens love to chase the cursor on the screen and often add a few characters to what I'm typing. Patience, patience.
