My destination: the Gunn Memorial Library, in the bucolic town of Washington, Connecticut.
There the members of the Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective gathered to hang our latest show, Threads, Fabrics, and Dyes as Art, in the library's Stairwell Gallery.
|And here we are, the Connecticut Fiber Arts Collective, posing in front of one of Carol Eaton's lovely ice-dyed pieces. Left to right: Mary Lachman, Carol Vinick, Diane Cadrain, Rosalind Spann, and Carol Eaton.|
|Here's Carolyn Hartman, in black, the library staffer who cheered us on and helped make it all happen|
|Here's our own Roz Spann talking to a reception guest|
|Here's Carol Vinick explaining one of her pieces to a reception guest|
|And here I am, posing next to three of the six pieces I have in the show: Edge of Winter, Farmington Valley Fall, and Fall Picnic.|
|Here's EdJohnetta, who honored me by her invitation to join her show.|
|Many thanks to my lovely daughter Lucia for helping me to create this poster for my solo show|
And just yesterday, I learned that a library patron who visited my show wants to buy one of the pieces in it! Glowing Cabbage III will be turned over to the buyer on the day my husband Joe and I strike the show at the end of the month.
|Here's Glowing Cabbage III, bound for glory in the home of a private collector.|
