Festive Front Porch Gallery

SAQA's Sharing Stories exhibit opening on Saturday at the Front Porch Gallery turned out to be a lovely afternoon filled with art, friends, family, music, fun and food in sunny Carlsbad.  A large crowd attended to view the selection of exceptional quilts in varied styles and techniques, all with a story to tell.  The staff at the gallery were very welcoming and put on wonderful reception.  I am pleased to have "Fluid Fissure 2" be a part of this fine exhibit.

I journeyed down to Carlsbad on the train with fellow artists and friends, Sherry Kleinman, Andi Perejda, Ranell Hansen and Judy Rys.  The trip (on a route often taken to visit family) flew by with all the interesting conversations and laughter!  Enjoy the photos below to get a taste of the day.

There is such a whirl of activity at openings.  I will have to revisit this show at a later
date when it is quieter to be able to spend more time with the artwork.

Sherry Kleinman, Terry Waldron and Sally Wright visit
Fiber Fanatics, the mini art critique group that I belong to, is well represented with four of us (Sally Wright, Sherry Keinman, Sandra Lauterbach and I) having work included.  
So if you are in the San Diego North County area, I highly recommend seeing this exhibit which runs through September 4.  There are restaurants, beach and shops all within walking distance of the gallery. 


  1. Looks like it's a great show, Linda. Bravo! And it looks like a delicious venue to visit regardless of what's showing.

  2. Congrats on being part of such a wonderful show. Sorry I don't live close enough to see it in person!

  3. Thanks Ladies, it was a fun day, and an honor to be a part of this exhibit. Wish you could see it!
