Purpose-Repurpose: Studio Art Quilt Associates

Purpose-Repurpose: Studio Art Quilt Associates

Studio Art Quilt Associates

Tue, September 6 – Sat, October 29

Purpose-Repurpose!, a tri-regional exhibition, will take place at The Mansion at Strathmore and it will include an installation by Paula Kovarik, the exhibition’s juror. Paula writes: “I’ve been thinking about how pieces linger in the studio. Repurposing them gives them new life and me a new challenge.”

Do you use your scraps to create new work? Do you repurpose clothing or other textiles? Have you ever cut up and re-imagined one of your quilts?

The word purpose implies intention. Re-purpose brings transition into focus. The exhibit will show that SAQA fiber artists continue the rich tradition of incorporating elements that would otherwise be discarded and turning them into compelling compositions.
