TIQE - 2012

Here is an opportunity for SAQA members to have their work in an exceptional exhibition in Taiwan in 2012. Taiwan Representative, Hsin-Chen Lin, is also the president of TIQE and the first festival she organized in 2009 was wonderful. The exhibition was very well received and the catalog is gorgeous. The 2012 exhibition will be from August to July and the theme is Moving Water and Rivers, with an emphasis on the life-giving and precious nature of water on the earth and the crucial environmental relationship we have with water. 

            Water and river are full of life and nutrient: novelty, freshness, and sustainability symbolize a source of vitality, expecting to convey an energetic, broad, and microcosmic angle of view, as well as each kind of life and existence that water and river embrace.

Details are posted on the SAQA website:
