Trunk Show in Newark
The Wayne County Council for the Arts is hosting a "Month of Quilts" exhibit at their facility in Newark, NY.
The purpose of the exhibit is to recognize and encourage the appreciation of contemporary quilt art by Wayne County artists.
The opening reception was this afternoon, and I presented a trunk show of several of my quilts.
On Saturday, May 21, Caris Burton will be doing a wearable art trunk show.
Two of my quilts (on the right in the picture) are in the exhibit.
On the left is Earthquake Compression and the right is Receding C's.
The quilt on the table is one my mother made in the 1930's from blocks she embroidered.
This view of the exhibit includes another of my mother's quilts on the table, a dresdan plates pattern.
This is the gallery shop. Mary, who is the Director for the Council, is also an old friend from Bill's and my teaching days at Finger Lakes Community College,
