SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates): Sightlines

Large-scale art quilts demonstrate an intriguing interaction of time, personal history, and memory, with the connection of a continuous line that runs through each piece.

 Carl Stewart: belated

belated is a series of textile work portraits, based on a family photo, intended as a 40th birthday present for Stewart’s brother who was struck by a car and killed when he was three years old. belated attempts to reconcile a legacy of loss and the fragility and fallibility of memory.

This is Carl’s first exhibition in the United States.

Carl Stewart is grateful to the Ontario Arts Council for its financial support of this work; photo courtesy to Lawrence Cook.
