Katriina´s work at the International Quilt  Museum (IQM), Lincoln-Nebraska, USA

 

A collection of Katriina´s work was acquired in 2019 in the permanent collection of the Museum of the International Quilt Study Centre/ IQSCM, an affiliate to the University of     Lincoln-Nebraska, USA. The acquisition covers work from the early days of Katriina´s artist career to the recent years. IQSCM is a leading establishment within the field.

The work maintained includes academic research programs.

June 2020 ”Att Cross Roads #4” by Katriina is included in the juried international ”Wide Horizons 7” organised by the Studio Art Quilts Association (SAQA). The exhibition was to be opened in Alsace, France, September 2020 whereafter it would be on tour. The ongoing pandemic forced the event to be cancelled however and any possible touring is postponed.
