Here's what Kathy told us about her contribution:

KT: I sun printed on metallic paint in shades of blue and copper and stitched in metallic threads around the sun printed leaf shapes using blue and copper on the inverse colours.

You can read more about Kathy Tidswell and her artwork on her website Kathy Tidswell Fibre Artist, and on our own 2018 feature

The Spotlight Auction is an opportunity for all SAQA members to have their work showcased at the 2019 SAQA Conference in San Jose, California. The pieces are auctioned at the conference with proceeds going to SAQA's exhibition programs. An online participation form must be completed before March 1, 2019 and artwork must arrive in Virginia by March 8, 2019. Further information is available here.

The Spotlight Auction is also an opportunity for SAQA Atlantic members to have their work featured on the SAQA Atlantic blog, to be enjoyed by those of us not attending the annual conference. If you've contributed to the 2019 auction, please let us have a sneak peek at your piece!
