Her materials are horse hair and needles, seeds and dog hair, burdocks that stick together, and grass stalks. Her subjects are space and the emptiness in between. Of tiny dimensions, lyrical in their sensuality: these are the sculptures of the German artist Christiane Löhr.

These bells are created using ancient techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries, originating from the Kutchchi desert region of western India. Each bell is first beaten into shape by hand, then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln. This age-old technique of metal-work and hand toning is what gives each piece its unique patina and tone. Bells and chimes were originally used as a means of identifying herds of cattle.

We've received some inquiries regarding some of the less familiar forms of art quilts that are included in the SAQA exhibition "Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora," so we're bringing you this post to educate everyone about what qualifies as an "art quilt" for a SAQA exhibition.

SAQA's definition of "art quilt" was changed several years ago to keep up with the expanding variety of dynamic artwork our talented members create!

This exhibition was created in collaboration with the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum and is on view at the fabulous new facility in Washington, DC until September 4, 2016.

The exhibition will not travel, so don't miss your chance to see it in person!

Mohamed El Maouloud Ag Hamid is a jeweler from Mali who was sponsored last year and attended the 2015 International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe.

Mohamed participated in our Mentor to Market program. The Program's social entrepreneurial education workshops assist first-time Market artists, giving them the best possible opportunity for success.

Mohamed recently shared, "It was great to meet other folk artists from around the world at the training and the Market. I also learned much more about the business side of folk art...and how we can grow our earnings for the community."

Mohamed generated over $28,000 in sales for his cooperative, Association Timidwa. These unparalleled earnings empowered him to make real change in peoples' lives in his home of Timbuktu. A portion of these sales were used to help unite part of Mohamed's community who were in refugee camps in Mauritania and Burkina Faso since 2012. He let us know that a "part of the sales were used to build a school and dig a borehole as a water well."

  • First Press for “My Corner of the World”
    SAQA exhibition “My Corner of the World” opened yesterday at the Stratford Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario, Canada. Attracting artists and visitors from around the globe, the opening was a great success, and earned an article in the Stratford Beacon Herald: There were 300 submissions for the show and choosing 80 was impossible. So impossible, Micaela Fitzsimmons, museum manager of collections and exhibitions, couldn’t cut that final quilt so the show features 81 pieces. Forty artists from the east coast to the west coast of Canada are represented along with quilters from the United States and as far away as Israel and Australia. Click through to read more about the exhibition and the opening, including quotes from SAQA President Lisa Ellis, and view all the artwork on the SAQA website. ... read more

I’m so happy to meet wonderful people through this great community. People who do their best every day to bewitch our world with art that celebrates the joy of living and the beauty around us."  Visit Ariane's Shop

  • "I wish I could relate to fellow fiber artisans what I have witnessed since joining TAFA. This site, this concept, this group was born from the mind of one extraordinary visionary and has grown to become so much more under her watchful eye. I have been amended, improved, astounded and amazed by the energy and knowledge embodied in TAFA.

    There is NO other place online that will work harder to help expand your reach, enhance your online impact or improve your understanding of what to do and how to do it to improve your fiber-related business. I am proud to be a member AND a sponsor for TAFA and will continue long after other of my memberships is gone!"  Visit Cat's Shop
