Studio Art Quilt Associates’ Benefit Auction kicks-off at 2pm EDT on September 16, but you are able to preview all the more than 400 donated artworks here (with much bigger photos available by clicking for more info) or peruse it by checking out six artworks chosen as Dream Collections. All the Dream Collections are here.
I chose my Dream Collection with the theme of Intriguingly Neutral : All of these artworks read as neutral, but I would love to have all of them on my walls as there would be something new to see in them every day:
According to SAQA:
September 16 Diamond Day bidding – an early bird opportunity to purchase ANY quilt for $1000. The 12″ x12″ Auction Quilts will be divided up into three sections for bidding purposes. Each week, a different section of quilts will be available for bidding, starting at $750 and further reduced throughout the week.
This is your chance to own beautiful, unique art quilts by some of the world’s finest artists. Plus, your purchases help increase the recognition for art quilts and the artists who make them while supporting SAQA’s exhibitions, publications, and education outreach.
I am a proud juried artist member of SAQA and donate artwork to the smaller Spotlight Auction at the annual conference. But I always hope to add to my collection during this great event.
