We had the day to explore the galleries participating in Fiber Philadelphia 2012.
Our first stop was at the Wexler Gallery, but we moved on to find a spot for some coffee.
The Wedge & Fig was very inviting, and was already occupied by some fellow fiber artists.
The food looked so good, that our quick stop turned into a little longer stay for delicious breakfast goodies.
Our next stop was the Snyderman Works Galleries with wonderful work by several well-known fiber artists.
To see the work on display there, go to www.snyderman-works.com
Priscilla and I both drooled over the great turquoise stoneware.
And I would have liked to bring this horse home with me too!

The gang, in their best Angelina poses, waits for the bus to take us to the opening of Art Quilt Elements.
The exhibit is at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA, and is open until May 13, 2012.
There are 48 pieces on display, selected from almost 700 entries, by jurors Elizabeth Barton, David McFadden, and Sandra Sider.
Several artists donated fiber postcards to the "Hang with AQE" postcard sale.
The sale drew lots of viewers, and we hope lots of buyers too.
I'm very happy to have my Whirlpool quilt in the exhibit, and it was great fun to be at the opening.
Several of us from this area made the trip to Philadelphia for the joint conference of Studio Art Quilt Associates and Surface Design Association.
The conference was held the last weekend in March in the Marriott in West Conshohocken, and this is the view from the 15th floor.
A closer view shows all the rowing activity that was happening on the river.

The Arena Art Group of Rochester opened its exhibit at Finger Lakes Community College on March 22nd.
This is Jeanne's "Fall Equinox" (acrylic on canvas).
The College is completing a large addition that will house student activities and related services. The space where these functions were originally housed will be remodeled into classrooms.
The look of the campus has really changed from when I last taught there in the 80's!

Priscilla and Beth were at the studio for a day of sewing.
Priscilla was finishing the green borders on this colorful quilt.
Beth was working on dresses for her grandaughter, who likes yellow.
The yellow print fabric has very cute kitties.
She finished two dresses, that just need a couple of buttons and a little hemming.

A few of us got together for some Show & Tell a few days ago.
Nancy had her "Day and Night" pieces on the wall while she considered what kind of quilting she would add to the pieces.
Bev was finishing the facing on her larger piece and has the quilting well underway on the second piece.
Nancy made a 6" X 6" quilt to contribute to the 6X6 exhibit and sale that benefits the Rochester Contemporary Art Center.
And Suki was very happy that I had taken my quilt off the wall so she could snuggle with it!
