Water is essential to the survival of all living things. It covers much of the Earth’s surface
and comprises more than half of the human body. Throughout history, water has been a
constant source of inspiration for poets, painters, musicians and philosophers.

This exhibition from Studio Art Quilt Associates challenged artists to interpret one of the
most vital, powerful, sacred and desired resources on Earth. The result is 34 original art
quilts and textile works from diverse regions of the United States and six other countries.
Each work reflects the artist’s own unique, individual style, whether abstract, graphic or
representational. Many are joyful and exuberant, while others are reverent and
contemplative. Several of the selected works address water quality and environmental
concerns. The variety of patterns, textures and layers in this exhibition draws us in and
invites us to consider the importance of the subject matter to the world and ourselves.
