That's me on the left, talking about my Shirt Tales, and Sandy Snow, who had an award winning NYB quilt on display. I was very fortunate to have Michael Dunn take some wonderful photographs for me throughout the evening.
There was a nice crowd of folks attending who appreciate fiber art. They asked good questions and laughed at my jokes. Below is one of my favorite photos from the event. It is no less than thrilling to see people enjoying your work, and each of my quilts has a story. Patrons told me that they enjoyed knowing the stories that went along with the images. This one is titled, Grandma Magic.
Also exciting for me was seeing my 'name in lights', or on the wall, anyway. Truly felt like Cinderella most of the weekend!
I was pleased that the curator, Catherine Bergmann, had selected this piece of mine to show in the atrium of the Art Center. The title is Driving Lessons. All the work was beautifully displayed and lit.
Another of the exhibits is a regional SAQA show called Growth! (Studio Art Quilt Associates) I'm very proud of this collection of work by my colleagues in Florida. Here are some scenes from that gallery:
All four exhibits will be shown until August 18 at DFAC. http://www.dfac.org I'll be teaching a fiber collage workshop there on Saturday, August 5. Contact DFAC for information.
And there were a few outtakes. This is not what it looks like.
And I have no idea what I was thinking here:
Thank you Michael, for taking pictures. It's not an easy job!
