Prism Play: A Full Spectrum of Art Quilts

A prism bends light – taking in white light, refracting it, and revealing a mind-boggling spectrum of color. Prism Play will allow gallery visitors to view a vibrant spectrum of color almost as though they were standing inside a prism.

We will be working with the Joen Wolfrom color tool in representing the full spectrum of color from warm red through orange, yellow, and green to blue, and violet. The show would include 5-6 color spectrums, hung continuously around the gallery walls for a total of 60 – 72 quilts. The ultimate result will be an exhibition that vibrates with color. 

Call for entry dates: Jun 28, 2021 – Oct 08, 2021

Forever Changed

This Showcase (curated by the SAQA Local Connections group for the Greater Sacramento/Foothills area of California), will feature art quilts (height 16”-24” x width 16”-24”) created by members of the SAQA Northern California/Nevada Region. 

Works created for this showcase will focus on the lasting impact of the events of 2020-21.  We don’t know what the future holds:  How have we changed as a result of the ongoing pandemic?  Are there permanent impacts, emotionally or otherwise – on the family, society, politics, the country?  Are human interactions altered forever – masks off/masks on – stay away/stay close – small groups/large crowds?  How have our children been impacted by the experiences of 2020-2021, or even into 2022?  Or, how was a major event in your life impacted or perhaps even caused by our pandemic reality?  “Forever Changed” will explore all facets of this subject.  All members of the SAQA Northern California/Nevada Region are invited to apply.

The showcase will be on display at:
