SAQA is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the art quilt "a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure". This exhibit will feature 30 artists that were invited to let their imagination take them on a journey to a WILD place, exploring the limits of theme, taking into account all things wild, such as untamed wildlands, wild spirit, wildlife, free, uninhibited.

Month of Photography- Inside and Out
April 8- May 6
Reception: Saturday, April 8, 6-8pm

They say the eyes are the window to the soul. They reveal true emotions, sentiments, and thoughts. The two artists in this exhibit convey the innermosCooper- Namibiat and outer most beauty of humankind. Ron Cooper has traveled the world in pursuit of images that reflect local cultures and people. His photographs are intended to convey a sense of place, personality and emotion. While his photographs document the many differences in appearance, dress, culture, and faith, he hopes they also convey the fact that our similarities and "connectedness" as humans far outweigh those superficial differences. Jaime Belkind-Gerson creates his work with the images that surround him daily: X rays, CT scans, MRI's through which our internal reality and beauty is manifest. These, he combines with other images that reflect our external world. They are manipulated with specifically designed software algorithms. Once captured, he uses manual processes for additional layering. Although these artists create their images very differently, both of them emphasize humankind’s reflections from within.
