Southern Accents at the Ruth Funk Center Galleries

Upcoming Exhibit:
Southern Accents (May 16 - August 22, 2015) This juried quilt exhibit features work submitted by Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) members living in the Southeast. Quilts are to be inspired by the question: what makes life in this part of the country special?…the history, tradition, or climate? Maybe it’s the demographics, food, or industries. Participants are encouraged to find the qualities that make living in the Southeast unique and celebrate them in an art quilt. The exhibit is juried by Dr. Sandra Sider.  The opening of the exhibit is held in conjunction with the inaugural regional conference “Studio to Gallery,” on the campus of Florida Institute of Technology May 15 – 16, 2015.
