Opening Reception
January 4, 2019

6pm to 9pm

Join us to see the amazing quilts, enjoy refreshments and meet the PAQA quilters and Gallery 200 artists

The 2018 PAQA (Professional Art Quilt Alliance) challenge was to interpret the idea of illumination in an art quilt. Come see the results in the January Featured Artist exhibit. The quilts could be an actual representation of light, an abstract concept of enlightenment, highlighting a social issue, or an illuminating idea to expand on.  Artists were encouraged to use their imaginations and help shed a new and different light on PAQA art quilts!

ProfessionalArt Quilt Alliance  (PAQA) is a group of mid-west fiber artists who meet monthly in suburban Chicago.  Members are encouraged to  bring and show new and original work, encourage new artists in the field, discuss professional issues, network, andshare wisdom and experience. New and old members alike continue to be inspiredby the work we show each other, and are encouraged in their efforts to grow andsucceed as artists.  You can read moreabout PAQA and see other examples of our work at
