Floridian Flavors - Characters, Culture, & Cuisine
A Juried Exhibit of Textile Artwork by Members of Studio Art Quilt Associates Florida Region.
January 11 - February 26, 2022
We are proud our state is one of diversity and inclusion. People in Florida come from all over the globe and all walks of life. We have astronauts, mermaids, cowboys, pirates, princesses, and pioneers. (And Parrotheads!) This collection of juried art quilts made by Florida SAQA members celebrates the rich and varied cultures, clothing, food, holidays, languages, history, and customs of our inhabitants, visitors, and even the rare individuals who are Florida-born and lifelong residents.
