That's the title of my "Dream Collection" for the 2020 SAQA Benefit Auction, which starts online on September 11 and runs into October this year. There are just shy of 500 pieces of 12" square artworks "on the block" this year -- and if money were no object, I'd bring home even more than the eight I've selected! Never mind the fact that besides loonies and twonies being in smaller supply this year, with art shows and sales cancelled, I have precious little wall space in my wee haven! I'd have to start rotating pieces like they do in galleries and museums!
Some of my selection have been created by people I've met -- either in person or on line -- who are not only colleagues but also friends. Others are by 'big names' in the studio art quilt world, whose work I admire and whom I'd love to meet one day.
With a limit of 8 per "Dream Collection", it was a challenge to pick and choose, but for this year, "If Money Were No Object", I'd want to bring these home...

An eclectic collection indeed -- but each and every one of these pieces make me smile! I hope you'll tune in to the Benefit Auction this year. You have to create an "account" and ensure your encrypted credit card information is on file if you intend to purchase anything. But even if you don't, you can peruse the art and create a "favourites" file...just in case... 😉
It's first come, first served when the auction opens each day, which makes it so much fun. AND it's a 'declining' auction, which means the prices drop over time. It's a race to see who can get the piece(s) they want at the best price! 😊 Check THIS LINK for all the information you need to know, to get in on the fun.
