Every SAQA exhibition requires an Exhibition Coordinator, and SAQA could use a few more people willing to take on this role.
The Exhibition Coordinator’s job is to handle the administration of one specific exhibition. It begins by answering the questions from the membership once the prospectus goes live.
The EC organizes the entries and submits them to SAQA on a spreadsheet which is also sent to the juror.
Once the juror makes her selections of artwork, the EC sends out the appropriate letters to the artists.
The EC continues to be the point of contact for the accepted artists throughout the course of the exhibition, informing them of each new venue that is secured.
The EC's job ends when the artwork is returned to the artists by Bill Reker.
EC's may submit work to the exhibition that they are coordinating since the juror does NOT receive the names of the artists. All SAQA exhibitions use a “blind jury” system.
Are you interested in becoming an Exhibition Coordinator? PLEASE contact Gwyned Trefethen: gwynedtrefethen @ mac .com

Open to SAQA members in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut
Deadline: May 31, 2015
Art as Quilt (Transitions in Contemporary Textile Media) is a juried exhibition of contemporary textile media that explores the subject of art as quilt. The word quilt implies a traditional 3 layered stitched approach but artists are encouraged to explore new and unique ways to push beyond these boundaries through the use of techniques and materials. This exhibit will consist of works that represent unexpected approaches and interpretations of the theme and help illustrate the diversity of styles, techniques and materials being used by the Studio Art Quilt Associates members.
Fuller Craft Museum (Brockton MA) September 2015
Highfield Hall and Gardens, Falmouth MA
Jurors: Sue Bleiweiss, Nancy Turbitt, Cheryl Rezendes
