The Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts is please to host Studio Art Quilt Associates’ (SAQA) newest fiber art show: Masters 2. In 2008, Lark Books added a new publication to its Master Works series, Masters: Art Quilts,written and curated by Martha Sielman, the Executive Director of Studio Art Quilt Associates. It quickly became one of the most successful selling books in the Lark series. SAQA traveled the accompanying exhibition of art quilts throughout the United States to rave reviews.
The 37 quilt artists included in the exhibition have proven themselves to be masters of this exciting art form, and hail from all over the globe. The artworks encompass a broad range of fiber art techniques and styles, from realistic to abstract. The subject matter varies from a study of Miles Davis intent on blowing his horn to an homage to New York City’s wrought iron tree gates.
Masters 2 will provide a provocative and stimulating museum experience.
