Art Evolved: Intertwined (Studio Art Quilt Associates and National Basketry Organization)
On view through October 22, 2023
Yellowstone Art Museum (YAM)
Billings, Montana

The YAM is honored to be the opening venue for “Art Evolved: Intertwined,” SAQA’s global exhibition organized in partnership with the National Basketry Organization.

Central to the exhibition theme is the continuum where beauty and function blend and diverge in the hands of the contemporary artist. Even when traditional materials such as thread, fabric, wood, reed, and paper are used, these artists combine skill, imagination, and vision to meld their materials into compelling and beautiful art which resonates within today’s world. Following a jury process, fifty-nine artists were invited to participate in this conversation between media to illustrate the continuum between beauty and functionality.

Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc. (SAQA) is a nonprofit 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.”
