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.

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.
