Do plan to visit this important and the ONLY all Canadian Art Exhibition from SAQA . The quilts will be on display at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum until September 22, 2018.

"Artist Walk and Talk" gallery tours will be available on 
Sunday September 9th at 10 am, 1 pm and 3 pm 
with Bethany Garner,  My Corner of the World - Canada Exhibition Curator 

The Museum is hosting the huge FIBREFEST weekend September 8 and 9th 
as well, so a wonderful time to visit the Village.

The Art Quilts represent 40 wonderful art quilt designers and stitch artists from across Canada who are part of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). This travelling exhibition, developed by SAQA, together with the Stratford Perth Museum, features the artists’ interpretation of their particular “corner of the world.” 
The designs and techniques are wonderfully varied. Some pieces depict an actual place, while others are abstract and evoke a feeling of place in time. All of them are technically intricate, and each deserves careful study.

SAQA is dedicated to presenting and preserving thought-provoking cutting-edge artwork and has 3400 members around the world. It is known for developing outstanding, museum-quality exhibits. The catalogue that accompanies the exhibit features all 40 pieces, as well as 40 more by international artists that are on display at the Stratford Perth Museum. Make sure to come and enjoy these fascinating depictions of special Canadian spaces.
