SDA Conference in San Antonio - SDA Members' Show

In early June, eight BC Surface Design Association members attended the SDA conference in San Antonio. A number of people took workshops (some of them took a workshop before AND after the conference weekend!) and some just attended the exhibition tour, lectures, vendor fair, trunk show, fashion show and member meetings. I think it's fair to say that we all came away feeling inspired, recharged and eager to get on with some new creative endeavours.

Congratulations to Connie Chapman, from Sechelt on BC's Sunshine Coast, who won the JOY STOCKSDALE BEST in SHOW award at the SDA Members' Show. This exhibition was open to all SDA members, with a format restriction in that each piece had to be mounted on a 12" x 12" x 1 1/2" stretched canvas. It was a very strong show with lots of wonderful work from all over the world, so this is a significant feather in her cap. 

The images below show some other award winners, and then entries by BC artists, then a few others from various locations. If you are a BC artist who sent in a piece and you don't see it here, please send me an image via my email and I will add it. We were rushed through the last part of the show, so I might have missed one or two.
I will post images of other exhibitions at the conference, next time.
