For our SAQA Members in central Canada ... artwork display opportunity to consider in Perth ON for Eastern ON members

Artwork by KAREN GOETZINGER 2018
Happy New Year everyone... 

Here is a note from SAQA Central member Anita Payne regarding an upcoming opportunity for displaying your art in a Gallery in Perth Ontario...

Hello SAQA members in eastern Ontario:

Streve Design Studio Boutique and Gallery (  in Perth is owned by Cheryl Straby. 

She has a different show in her gallery every two months. Currently the gallery is showing art with the theme "Red". Two of my quilts are in this exhibit.

Cheryl would like to showcase quilt art in March and April 2020. There is no specific theme, but a theme could arise from the submitted works. 

Quilt art pieces need to be ready to hang. Your work would have to be priced for sale. The gallery would keep 40% of the sale price for items that sell. 
You would be responsible for bringing your quilts to Perth and picking them up after the show.

Please let Cheryl know if you have any questions and send her images of quilts that you would like to be considered for the March-April show.   
Happy New Year!
