Portfolio 18 - (Page i)
Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) is pleased to bring you the latest digital volume in our Portfolio series, Portfolio 18, showcasing glorious artwork by 241 artists. Each artist is a professional artist member of SAQA, the world’s largest organization devoted to art quilts. Whether you’re a collector, curator, or critic, we encourage you to use Portfolio 18 as a reference tool for your work in the arts. The magnifying window allows you to create a moveable, up-close view of any section of the pictured artwork. You may also use the Search function to sort the artworks by artist’s geographical location or by genre categories, including Abstract, Conceptual, Color work, Figurative, Landscape, Nature, Representational, and Sculptural. Prior volumes of SAQA’s Portfolio series are available through the SAQA Bookstore on our website, www.saqa.com. In addition, images from Portfolio 17 are available in an online digital version, searchable by artist, location, and genre. Founded in 1989, SAQA is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt. Now comprised of almost 3,000 members in 31 countries, SAQA promotes the art quilt through exhibitions, publications, and professional development opportunities. We host an annual conference, publish a quarterly Journal, and sponsor multiple exhibitions each year. We hope you enjoy this opportunity to immerse yourself in page after page of wonderfully innovative artwork which merges the tactile, technological, and traditional aspects of quilted art.
