Arlington Art Museum


arlington-opening-november-08

 

Last night was the opening of the Arlington Art Museum fiber art Show. The show was curated by Mary Ruth Smith and was wonderfully displayed in an absolutely beautiful space. We had wine in real glasses, live entertainment by a granddaughter of the original founder of the museum, birthday cake for one of the members, and a short presentation by each of the artists in attendance (the best part!). Afterwards, several of us went out to dinner at Bravos and although I had only met one person before, it was like old friends.

 

I had an opportunity to meet the installers of the show who were quite ardent admirers of all the work but they were especially taken with my piece Canning Peaches which was the first piece seen as you entered the space. Many pieces were labeled offering a comparison to vintage quilts as shown in Quiltmania II. I was also honored to have my other piece on the Art Museum’s promotional website.

 

Here are some photos of the space and the opening.
