Congratulations go out to SAQA New Mexico members Betty Busby and Shannon Conley.  Betty's piece "Tribute" and Shannon's piece "Peering Out of the Darkness" were juried into the Quilt National 2015 show.

"Quilt National ’15, the nineteenth international juried competition for new, innovative quilts will be on display May 23 – September 7, 2015 at The Dairy Barn Arts Center in Athens, Ohio (USA).

Jurors were quilters Rosalie Dace (Durban, South Africa), Ann Johnston (Lake Oswego, OR) and museum curator Judy Schwender (Paducah, KY)."

"Quilt National was intended to demonstrate the transformations taking place in the world of quilting. Its purpose was then, and still is, to carry the definition of quilting far beyond its traditional parameters and to promote quiltmaking as what it always has been — an art form."  This, according to the Dairy Barn Arts Center website.


Other news, Judith Roderick, who will be the Featured Artist at the 2015 Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta, has several pieces accepted into the Houston International Quilt Festival Show.  Look for her pieces and all the pieces of the members of SAQA NM if you attend the show at the end of the month.  Also check out SAQA's Celebrating Silver Exhibit, juried by Yvonne Porcella.  Several of our New Mexico members were juried into that exhibit, including our own Michelle Jackson.
