SAQA Auction Pieces
"New" Call for Entry!
Exhibit Name: Under the Western Sun
Premier Location: Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
Dates: April 27 to July 25, 2017
Where an artist lives impacts the voice with which they speak. Here in the West we experience extremes of climate and altitude; intense color and light, unusual landscapes and plants; unique people and cultures. These all influence the work we do Under the Western Sun.
Juror: Patty Kennedy-Zafred
Patricia Kennedy-Zafred has been telling stories through the medium of textiles and art quilts for over 20 years. Her prize winning work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and has been published in books and magazines throughout her career.
Patricia Kennedy-Zafred's art, influenced by her educational background in journalism and photography, is primarily image driven, with the intent to tell a story, trigger a memory, or elicit an emotion. Each piece is seen through the lens of the viewer, whose personal experiences contribute to the interpretation of the work. Her current work has been focused on historical imagery, which she silk screens onto hand dyed fabric, and enhances with additional image transfer, layering and stitch.
Kennedy-Zafred's work has been accepted in such major juried exhibitions as Quilt National, Visions, Artist as Quiltmaker, Fantastic Fibers and Quilts=Art=Quilts, and has won top prizes at both International Quilt Festival and American Quilt Society competitions. Her work has also been included in numerous curated and invitational exhibitions of fiberart and fine craft.
