Overlapping Colors is like music for the eyes. It is intended to be enjoyed by the viewers. 3D – layer upon layer of batik and other cottons, gold mesh.

The SAQA 2010 Benefit Auction is now open and conclude on Saturday, October 9 at 2:00 Eastern.

The Auction is run in three sections:  Section 1 – Pages 1a and 1b will be up for auction today through Saturday, September 25 with the other two sections to follow in coming weeks.

On the first day of each section’s auction, the price for all pieces in that section is $750. The next day (at 2:00 Eastern), the price drops to $550. The third day, it drops to $350, then $250, then $150, and finally $75.

Last year’s Benefit Auction raised $47,325. The funds raised through the Auction are critical to supporting SAQA’s exhibitions, catalogs and outreach programs.

    The first SAQA 12 X 12 quilt that I purchased – before the auction – was by you. I treasure it and have added 3 others.
