Upcoming Exhibit

This has not been a good week for the studio, and today's try did not get me very far. I'm at a bit of an impasse over the last thread color to add - my several tries have not worked as anticipated. So in lieu of showing you studio progress, I'm sharing information about the upcoming Pend Orielle Arts Council invitational exhibit Art Quilts: Beyond Tradition.

I have two pieces in the exhibit which opens next Friday, April 18 with a reception from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. and runs through June 8. If you are in the area, please check it out. The exhibit space in the Old Power House at 120 Lake Street in Sandpoint, ID encompasses two levels of an atrium-like space surrounded by office space and a restaurant. Natural light should show off the quilts to their best advantage. The one shown above, by the way, is by the organizer of the exhibit, Marty Bowne, and is being raffled to raise money for POAC.

I checked out the Pend Orielle Arts Council site and couldn't find anything about the upcoming show.
I'm from Creston, BC and a number of us might be interested in coming.
My date book is full the weekend of the opening but surely we could make it a "field trip."

Yes, I know. POAC doesn't seem to want to get too far ahead of itself. The postcard announcements just went into the mail yesterday. I'm hoping they update the website over the weekend. Keep checking back!

It would be great if you and your gang came down. There are 16 of us in the show so up to 32 quilts to see. There's a nice little quilt/yarn shop in Ponderay, an artist co-op downtown and lots of other things to see and do. If I'm available, I'd love to meet you and show you around.
