Q=A=Q Opening at Schweinfurth
The 33rd Annual Juried Quilt Exhibition, Quilts=Art=Quilts, opened at the Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, NY. The opening was very well attended, and several of the participating artists were there.
Several members of our group, the Art Quilt People (better known as "The Peeps"), are shown here. We sponsored one of the awards given at the show.
We are posed in front of Pat's quilt, for which she won an Honorable Mention Award. (Pat, Marcia, Carol, Nancy, Bev, Jeanne, and Anne.)
The Best of Show Award went to Judy Kirpitch for Anxiety No. 6.
First Prize went to Kit Vincent for Megantic.
The Schweinfurth Award for Design Excellence went to Gerri Spilka for Edge #2.
This is my quilt, Icicles.
Sheila Framton-Cooper flew in from California for the weekend just to participate in the opening. This is her piece, Red Dragon.
