SAQA’s benefit Auction 2010 is just about a month away. There are 288 gorgeous works of art up for bid at prices from $750 to $75. We need to let everyone know! So I am doing my part by posting it here.
Go to www.saqa.com, and click on “News and Events” at the top of the page, and to SAQA 2010 Benefit Auction. There you’ll be able to see all works, and make a list of the ones you’d like to bid on. Some of my favorites are:
This one is by Carole Grant; Cala Lillies, of course!
This one is by Genevieve Attinger. I love her images
The next one is by Heather Stoltz; I like this one becauses of the writing and the ghostly image of the eyes:
The next one is by Jean Jurgenson; it appeals to me because of the old piece of architecture and the fact that it is in black and white. Do you see a theme running through all these pieces?
The next one is by Mary Pal; she does amazing work using cheesecloth. I really like this …
And now a very fun and colorful one by Terri Stegmiller, one of the founders of Three Creative Studios. If you’ve never heard of them, give them a try and sign up for their newsletter; it’s well worth it. They do amazing work and offer classes online. They also have the most wonderful tutorials. A sample below:
This one is by Jenny Hearn; when you go to the website, click on it, and zoom in, to see the amazing stitching throughout the piece.
And one more. Not that I don’t have others I like, but … can’t post them all here, otherwise there’d be no reason for you to go to the website and check them all out. This one is by Linda Colsh. I’ve admired her work for a long time, and never tire of looking at the images:
I hope you’ve enjoyed a sample of the amazing pieces of work available at the auction. Go to the website and see how it all works, and bid on one of the pieces. Drop me a note and let me know which ones you like best.
And in the meantime, with all that as inspiration … keep quilting. Until I blog again.
