SAQA's I'M Not Crazy Exhibition includes work by two SAQA Central Canada members

STOGIE by Mary Pal

IN MY HEAD by Carol Howard Donati

Two of our regional members, Mary Pal and Carol Howard Donati, have had work juried into SAQA's special exhibit entitled I'm Not Crazy.

Congratulations to Mary and Carol, both very talented and deserving SAQA Central Canada members, who have demonstrated their commitment to creating thought provoking new work and to sharing it through the many exhibitions and opportunities available to all of us as SAQA members.

Juror Sue Reno chose 20 pieces to be exhibited out of 128 art quilts by 86 artists. Together they create a compelling exhibition of work addressing issues of mental illness and the stigma attached to it. The exhibition will travel with Mancuso shows and if you will be in the area where it is being shown over the next year, we hope you will report on your visit:
