The SAQA regional touring exhibit DEEPLY ROOTED showcases the work of outstanding quilt artists from four Midwest states: Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, and Wisconsin.
The exhibit explores what it means to be deeply rooted. How does our connection to nature, community and spirituality nourish us? What is our source of strength in good and in challenging times? The exhibit was juried by international fiber artist Kathyanne White and is comprised of 30 contemporary art quilts encompassing a broad range of styles and techniques.
