San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles
San Jose, CA
What inspires artists? Is it their environment, the people in their lives, minute observation, grand passions, perhaps the act of artistic creation itself? Inspirations II, from the Northern California/Northern Nevada Region of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), an international organization supporting and promoting the art quilt, will show the result of twenty textile artist taking personal inspiration and, using a wide and inventive array of materials and techniques, turning it into a work of art that expresses their unique voice. This show is the successor to Northern California Inspirations, which was exhibited at FiberSpace in 2014.
