Highlights from Festival in Long Beach

"Rituals" exhibit by Dinner at Eight Artists - 42 artists;  we had a prime location for our exhibit.  Co-curated by Leslie Tucker Jenison and me.  We talked to viewers, led tours, and sold catalogs.  You can read more about the exhibit on the Dinner at Eight Artists blog

This is the front side that faced Main Street, in between Tactile Architecture and SAQA

The Artist's Village, coordinated by Kathy York, where all of the houses were made by artists who made houses that reflected their own personal style.  This was part of Tactile Architecture.  Leslie Tucker Jenison, Judy Coates Perez and I all have a house in this exhibit, and we happily set it up for the show!  It was extremely popular!

On Friday night at Festival, we have an artists dinner for Dinner at Eight Artists - with whoever is attending, and a couple of guests. It is always a special evening.  Table for 18.  Here's to all of you!

The trunks for shipping.  This exhibit will be shown at the International Quilt Market and Festival in late October, sponsored by Havel's Sewing

Our exhibit was a 'no photography' exhibit, and I don't think there were enough signs, or they weren't large enough, because the white glovers said it was a real problem with people taking pictures.  We didn't allow photography, because we were selling books all about the exhibit.

Hamming it up at take down, well one of us was, in front of Sarah Ann Smith's yoga quilt
