Colour with a U

Colour with a U (Video Slideshow) SAQA Virtual Tour

Shirtz, Susan Avishai, 2013

Colour with a U and its companion exhibition Colour with a U Too are juried exhibitions art quilts on the theme of diversity and inclusion by Canadian members of Studio Art Quilt Associates.

In Canada, we spell colour with a “u”. We care about the “u”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. SAQA artists have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural
identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical and physical landscape.
Colour with a U was juried by Faith Hieblinger, Guest Curator, Homer Watson House & Gallery, Alan Syliboy, Mi’kmaq Artist, and Jayne Willoughby, Textile Artist. Colour with a U Too was juried by Dr. Debra Antoncic, Director/Curator of RiverBrink Art

SAQA is an international non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt and the artists who create them. Founded in 1989 with 34 members, it now has over 3,700 members world-wide. SAQA defines an art quilt as “a creative visual work that is layered
and stitched or that references this form of stitched layered structure.” More information about SAQA can be found at
