Reminder - Opening Reception Gallery 53 on Saturday, April 10

"ALL THINGS CONSIDERED"
​Reception: Saturday April 14th, 12-2 pm
Refreshments served, free parking in garage across the street.

This is what they have posted on their website with pictures - looks
great: http://www.gallery53.org/textileshow2018.html

On Exhibit: April 14 - 27

See how regional artists exploit the creative potential of textiles to
create new, exciting and meaningful works. Many of the exhibitors are
members of ​SAQA ​(Studio Art Quilt Association) Connecticut, a group
dedicated to supporting and promoting professional fiber artists and
teachers as well as quilters working to develop their fine art skills.
This juried show will be judged by well-known textile artist Clara Nartey.

These stunning layered, stitched visual works are an eye-opener: from
its roots as a practical craft, quilting has evolved into an art form
in its own right. Don't miss this exhibit!
