Evolving Perceptions: Art Quilts from SAQA CO/UT/WY Region

2020 Quilt Exhibition: Evolving Perceptions


Evolving Perceptions

“If you can change your perception, you can change your emotion, and this can lead to new ideas.”

- Edward Bono

"Evolving Perceptions" is a cutting edge exhibit that will stretch the imagination of the viewer and display a mix of new and traditional art quilt techniques. 

This juried exhibition contains the exceptional work by thirty SAQA members from the Colorado/Utah/Wyoming Region and premiered in 2019 at the Foothills Art Center in Golden Colorado. It was judged by current SAQA President, Deborah Boschert. “Going through all the entries I was struck by artists’ willingness to explore materials in innovative ways,” Boschert explained. “Some pieces make the material itself the focal point by mounting and presenting cloth to be carefully examined. Others manipulate the fabric creating dramatic texture and pattern”. Museum visitors will notice the finer details of each quilt’s technique and variety of materials.

Exhibition opens on Saturday, June 20 and closes on Saturday, September 5.

Guided tours available:
