New Challenge for SAQA CT Artists!
Hard to believe that we have to start thinking "Holiday Tree" during this wonderful Spring/Summer weather we have been enjoying!
But this is a great opportunity for all of our SAQACT members.

At our May 24th SAQA meeting, we received your enthusiastic response to the request to provide fiber art decorations for this year's quilting-themed holiday tree at New Britain Museum of American Art (NBMAA).
Since the NBMAA exhibit "Stitching in time - American quilts 1758 to 2014" will be held between October 2014 - January 2015, this is a wonderful opportunity and venue for your work to be seen by an appreciative audience.
Suggested SIZE and SELLING PRICE*:

4" x 6" - $25.00
7" x 9" - $100.00

*You may list your artwork as (NFS) OR you may set your own price for your piece. Please contact Anna Tufankjian email@example.com if you wish to vary the standard size or price.
You may submit more than one piece – pieces that are not hung on the tree will be for sale in the Museum store.
