"This SAQA regional exhibition will be the premiere opportunity for Montana and Idaho artists to show their work as a group.  A broad spectrum of dynamic work from this region, created over the past 10 years, will be featured.  This show will serve as a prologue to the SAQA Creative Force Show that will hang in nearby Yellowstone Art Museum from March through June 2012."
‘Big Sky Country: Heart Mountain’ by Phyllis Movius; 37" X 21 5/8”
Phyllis writes of her work: ‘Montana and Wyoming have the same kinds of broad vistas that I have grown accustomed to in Alaska--the same "big sky" and expansive landscape as in the north country. Heart Mountain, over 8000 feet above sea level, dominates the view as you drive south on Highway 120 in Wyoming.  This piece was fused using hand dyed cotton and silk organza, and commercial cotton fabrics’.
