The Oregon SAQA regional exhibit Blending Poetry and Cloth just finished an exhibition at the NW Quilt Expo in Portland. Several people mentioned that they thought it was the best work in the show. The curators, Leotie Richards, Karen Spencer and Jean Wells are working to secure a spring date at Pioneer Place Gallery in Portland. Right now the quilts are in secure storage while we're fabricating rods that will be suitable for all gallery venues. Upcoming dates for gallery venues are The Rogue Gallery in Medford June 3rd - July 28, 2016, Willamette Heritage Center, Salem Sept. 22 - Dec. 24, 2016. We have two venues secured for 2017 so far - Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg for March-April, 2017 and Crossroads Carnegie Center in Baker City for June of 2017. The exhibit brochure is also in the works and will be available for online orders in January of 2016.
