On Saturday afternoon the JAM members had a private tour and a talk by the owners of the gallery.They are the most delightful couple, having owned this gallery for over 50 years. They live upstairs over the gallery.
The Snydermans being their usual charming selves.
I was so taken by these little gems done by Cindy Hickock. They were quite small, perhaps six or eight inches square and were totally covered with machine stitching. Go to her website to see some more. She has a great sense of humor.
I would have loved to take one of these home with me, had they not been over $7,000 each. The artist, Marilyn Pappas, had several pieces in the show incorporating antique maps, masks and stitching.
Warren Seeling had three pieces in the show, all using steel rods and other materials, this one using granite rocks. I loved the shadows on the wall that were so important to the piece. This one measured 15" x 120".
That's it for today. Still battling this cold, although it is getting better. Come back and I'll show you some more of my SAQA conference adventures.
