|Curtain Call 2 - Elaine Quehl, Ontario|
I joined SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) almost a decade ago, and it's changed my life -- but that's a story for another day.
For the past three years I've served as Co-Rep (Alberta) for the SAQA Western Canada Region. This summer, I was asked if I would curate an online gallery of SAQA's Juried Artist Members. What could I do that hadn't been done before?
Well -- hey there, eh?!
I'm Canadian. I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that an all-Canadian exhibit hadn't been done before...
Thus was born "CANCON" -- short for "Canadian Content". Seventeen Canadians at the time (there's now 18) were Juried Artist Members, and thirteen had work posted on the SAQA 'JAM Gallery' online...so I chose them all. To see this very special exhibit, please click HERE.
NOTE: I'm linking this to WIP Wednesday...another all-Canadian group. Why don't you see what the rest of us are up to? :-)
