Natural Healing
An exhibit of contemporary fiber art
Presented by Studio Art Quilt Associates of New Mexico
2015-2016
Since the dawn of history, humans have used plants and animals to cure the sick, heal wounds, and promote health. Our challenge for Natural Healing was to create a representation, in a 20x30” piece of fiber art, of one or more plants or animals that contribute to human wellness. Inspiration could be from ancient or cutting edge medicine.

Who are we?
SAQA is an international organization that promotes quilting as an art form and serves to educate the public about the history of quilts and their significance in contemporary art. The exhibition is open to fiber artists who are members of the New Mexico region of SAQA.
Contemporary art quilts are part of a revolutionary movement that has transcended the once strict barriers between the craft of quilting and fine art, filling a niche somewhere between sculpture and painting. These artists combine their exceptional skills in working with fabrics, threads, and their artistic insights to craft stunning tactile creations that inspire, elevate, and encourage reflection.
