“Out of the huts of history's shame
I rise
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I rise
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.”

  • Spotlight Auction Deadline Extended
    Due to member request, the deadline for the Spotlight Auction has been extended. You now have until March 15 to submit your artist participation form, and March 22 is the receive by date. With a size of only 6” x 8” (either portrait or landscape orientation), these tiny artworks are much faster to create than larger work and offer a perfect opportunity to experiment with something new. The Spotlight Auction takes place at the SAQA Conference. It’s a fun-filled and exciting silent auction, with stiff competition for exquisite small art quilts created and donated by our members! It’s both a great opportunity to acquire artwork by some of your favorite artists, as well as have your artwork acquired by art quilt collectors. The Spotlight Auction was a highlight of last year’s SAQA Conference. These are just a few of the beautiful art quilts that were available in Phildadelphia. 2016 Spotlight Auction 2016 Spotlight Auction 2016 Spotlight Auction 2016 Spotlight ... read more

    Melody Money Melody Money – Boulder, Colorado, USA Artist Statement For me what makes a piece of art sing is a combination of the details, and the quality of the light. I try to celebrate everyday moments. The wind through the grass, birds in flight, the way the light makes snow shimmer, light reflected on water, the musicality of starlight are all images full of radiance. I love the process of many small details coming together to form an essence of a place in time. The journey is as important as the finished piece. I am motivated to take a medium that is traditionally worked on a smaller scale and expand it to a larger vision. I welcome the opportunity to go over the top with detail. The use of textiles has enabled me to incorporate texture into my paintings. The fabric softens the edges and warms the final piece. But mostly for me, it is about the shimmer ... read more
