Paula Huffman Brown, a representative of the Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc., will be presenting one of the seven traveling fiber-art trunk shows at the Aiken’s Artist Nest on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
The show is one of seven of the group’s trunk shows that travel the world and consists of 32 fiber-art pieces created by members of the group to show their art.
Curated by international artist Eileen Doughty, the show was designed to showcase the Studio Art Quilt Associates’ diversity of talent and its mission to “promote the art quilt through education, exhibitions, professional development, documentation and publications.”
The trunk show is a wonderful way to view and engage with quilts made using a wide variety of styles, techniques, and fibers.
“This is such an exciting opportunity for Aiken to host this beautiful show,” said Jackie Farnell, owner of the Aiken’s Artist Nest. “I hope everyone will come out and take advantage of the event.”
Studio Art Quilt Associates is an international, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt and the artists who create them. The group defines an art quilt as “a creative visual work that is layered and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure.”
Founded in 1989 by an initial group of 50 artists, there are now more than 3,000 artists, teachers, collectors, gallery owners, museum curators and corporate sponsors worldwide who are members.
Paula Huffman Brown is an internationally exhibited and published fiber artist. Most recently she was selected as a semifinalist for the American Quilting Society Show in Charlotte. She is a member of the Aiken Artist Guild and Studio Art Quilt Associates.
