Maine FiberArts Reception November 21

The beautiful reading room at the Glickman Family Library (USM Portland) is the setting for an exhibit showcasing over 30 artists, most of whom are from Maine. That's my quilt, "Mom and Auntie Jean Play Gin" you can see in the photo above. I am so excited to attend the reception on November 21, and see the work of amazing artists such as Natasha Kempers-Cullen, Cathy Worthington and Kathy Angel Lee! The reception runs from 3:00 to 5:00 that Friday afternoon.

Won't it be fun for Mom to see 'her' quilt in such a lovely setting? Of course, she enjoys it every day on her living room wall, and she wants it back, but I am sure she will understand why I wanted to loan it for this show.

In addition to quilted wall-hangings, the show includes woven textiles, fiber books, collages and much more. If you can't make it to the reception, the show is up until December 19, so do make time to go feast your eyes!
