Transformation Opening

My FiberWorks group puts on a show at a local library each year but this was the first year that we had an opening.  We all deemed it a big success and hope to do it again next year.  Although we were not allowed to serve wine, we did have bottled water and scrumptious goodies provided by members.

Susi made this beautiful flower arrangement for the table. The vintage calico pumpkins were made by our dearly departed Heloise, who started this group many years ago. Her daughter Chris, a weaver is now a member.

 We had thirteen pieces in the show.  Since our group now includes weavers, felters, knitters, and painters, our show had a nice diversity.

What a fascinating exhibition with a wonderful diversity of media, execution and interpretation of the theme. I noticed that most of the pieces were mounted on covered board. Was this something that you agreed on in the group?
