Art Quilt Elements 2010

Saturday was the SAQA symposium at the Wayne Art Center. It was my first time attending such an event. The program was called "Building an Artist's Community" and included an excellent keynote address by Sue Benner. The three jurors, Jason Pollen, Robin Schwab, and Deborah Warner, spoke about the jurying process. Lisa Chipetine and Sandra Sider talked about new gadgets and ways to network on the Internet....with focus on how these forms of communication could establish art quilt critique groups. We had plenty of time to see the exhibition, talk among ourselves, exchange business cards, and enjoy lunch....before the official opening of Art Quilt Elements 2010. It was a great day. I met lots of interesting and talented people!
