Cinema Place Gallery-opening Sept 21
Cinema Place Gallery, The Quiltessential Event.. Hope you can make it to see this Art Quilt Show in Hayward. Lura Schwarz-Smith is a neighbor and good friend. She helped me pack up my quilts and showed me how she wraps and ships by Fed Ex. I am so thankful, for her assistance with this.. We sent in separate boxes. Kerby, her husband entered 3, Lura has 3 in the show, and I have 2 pieces.
If you are out that way, please do stop in. I know many of the quilt artists and I am sure there are some fantastic pieces to be seen and bought.
Remember if you are ever out our way, Lura, Kerby and I, are all in the Timberline Gallery in Oakhurst. You can email us, and if we are in town we would be glad to meet you there. We also work on different days in the gallery. Sometimes the dates are printed on the Timberline Web site.. or call first. Since this is a co-op gallery each artist has a day a month to work. What ever your interest, I am sure we have an artist that knows that particular style.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
