"Exploring Layers" SAQA Exhibit in Portland

The Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) is having an exhibit at the AIR Gallery at Pioneer Square, 700 5th Avenue, Portland, third floor. The exhibit, called "Exploring Layers" will be on display until May 16th, and includes the work of Oregon and Southwest Washington members of SAQA.

According to the SAQA website, the Exploring Layers theme "stimulated members to create many pieces expanding the boundaries of contemporary textile art. This work explores many layers of thought and an expanded view of fibers as a medium." Here are some pictures with pictures of the labels after each quilt.

Open Thursday through Sunday, noon to 6. Closing reception is May 16th from 5-9pm. Info.
