(Full Quilt Size: 24” x 42”) by Jo Sweet
Houston, Texas is a vibrant and diverse city, full of inspiration for any artist. From street art to natural wonders and from amazing foods to international languages, the fourth largest city in the U.S. defies easy classification. The SAQA Houston Circle called on its members to interpret their home city in an art quilt. The works portray Houston as a resilient, welcoming, modern, and changing metropolis.
