Local Color: A Connecticut Welcome -- Juror Results and Other Updates


The Local Color Exhibition Committee would like to thank everyone who took the time to enter SAQA-CT's fifth regional fiber art show, Local Color: A Connecticut Welcome. We had the pleasure of seeing all the images come in during November. Everyone was impressed by the creativity and talent shown by our members. 

We received 60 entries. Our Juror, Anna Patalano, gave each one her thoughtful consideration and chose 35 pieces for the show. 

Congratulations to the artists whose work was chosen for this year's exhibition: Christina Blais, Lois Caron, Barbara Danzi, Tamar Drucker, Lin Elmo, Wendy Frieden, Rita Hannafin, Karen Kebinger, Evelyn Oliver Knight, Gail Kotowski, Clara Nartey, Kathy Nutley, Ruth Anne Olson, Margaret Phillips, Judy Ross, Catherine Whall Smith, Linda Stern, Kate Stiassni, Kate Themel, Carol Vinick, Mayann Weinberg and Diane Wright.

The show will premiere at the Guilford Art Center, located at 411 Church Street, Guilford CT, on February 4, 2022. It will be on display there until March 5, 2022.

Our CT Reps, Kathy Nutley and Laura Lugo are planning the next CT Regional meeting at Guilford Art Center on February 5, 2022. More details about the meeting will be included in the CT Newsletter and on this blog. Stay tuned! 

The exhibition will travel to Greenwich Art Society in May 2022 and the Windham Textile & History in August 2022. We hope you will visit the show while it is on tour. 

Thank you again for your support and for sharing your inspiring artwork.
