From the Texas Quilt Museum:
“Featuring works by members of the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), Musica! showcases 31 works which were juried by San Francisco-based quilt artist, teacher, and author Joe Cunningham. He also produces the very popular “Quilt Report” series of online videos documenting his quiltmaking processes.
As the sole juror of Musica!, Cunningham praises SAQA for its longtime support of the art quilt medium. “Through expressions [like these quilts], we can foster individual ways of making, thinking, and seeing the world,” he offers. “I am grateful that such an organization exists for quiltmakers who want to make art.”
According to Museum Curator Dr. Sandra Sider, “Some music also seems to have color. We speak of ‘singing the blues’ as well as ‘red hot jazz.’ And music can be said to ‘color’ our emotions. Several quilts in this exhibit interpret performers, dancers, and dancing, including a piece evoking the swish and swirl of dresses during a waltz.””
