Corvallis Exhibit Now Open

Here are a few photos from yesterday at The Arts Center in Corvallis, Oregon.  The noontime brown bag lunch was well-attended.  Curator Hester Coucke asked some challenging questions which Linda McLaughlin and I answered as best we could.  The audience participated, and we had a lively discussion about art, craft, quilting, sewing, influences, and dreams. It was quite fun!

Linda's work, all black and white circles in various permutations, and mine, colorful shapes and patterns, compliment each other perfectly.  It is an interesting and effective juxtaposition in a gorgeous gallery space.

There were quite a few attending the evening opening, with great food provided by the local art quilt group.  Thanks to all the staff and volunteers that made the exhibit possible.
