Gallery Show, part 2

 Last night was the opening of the show, Close Knit--A Group fiber Art Show, that I blogged about yesterday.  I was so pleased for several reasons.  I thought the show was well hung with excellent lighting, there was an array of diversity, the show was well attended,  the wine and food were delicious, and the live music was terrific (and they played nonstop for the whole two hours).

Be sure to click on any picture to see a bigger view of all.


Me standing next to "Houston Reflections"


And me with Fern Dance II, Of Cabbages andKings, and City Lights. I had another quilt that was mounted on canvas and that was hung in the window.
Paula Renee's beautiful tapestry.

Also by Paula. Gorgeous!

Ellen Schiffman's incredible  framed felted sculptures

Arle Sklar-Weinstein's fiber montages on layered printed organza over cotton.  She was not at the reception.  I would have liked talking to her about her process.

June Myles' hooked creations.  She also had some pillows on the couch and her book to peruse.

Liz Alpert Fay's stunning large piece made of hand stitched wool circles.

Joy Wofse with her interesting woven and macrame jewelry.
Lisa Furman and her group with their hauntingly beautiful Celtic and American folk music.

Part of the crowd


Pat, Claire , and Nike

I have put links to the artist's websites when available.  Be sure to check them out to see more of their work.

I was enjoying myself so much, chatting with friends and new acquaintances, sipping wine, and listening to the music that I didn't want to leave, but I was meeting friends at the movies to see the new "Quartet" with Maggie Smith.  It was the perfect ending to a great evening.

Norma, it looks like a nice crowd, and the art work is gorgeous. I am going now to check out Ellie's felted sculpture in more detail.

Congratulations! Looks like a wonderful show, too bad it's on the other side of the country.
