Appreciating the Day

With Pacifying Passion

It was a gorgeous, warm day as I headed south by train to attend the SAQA Fiber Reactions exhibit reception last Saturday, 12/14.  Even Union Station was decked out for the season.

I met my sister and Mom in Solana Beach, and we then drove to the Poway Center for the Performing Arts.

The views below are of the lower lobby of the theater, which is light and airy.  The exhibit is hanging both in the lower area and upstairs ( I only took pictures of the work and not the upper space itself).  There was a good crowd in attendance.

Here are a some selected quilts:

California Dreaming: Asilomar by Sally Gould Wright

Winter Solstice by Trish Charity

Turning a New Page by Kathy Piper

Nostalgia by Paulette G. Landers

Red Fractals by LeeAnna Yater

Cosumel Musings by Linda Friedman

Gardeners Life By Desiree Habicht

I was appreciative to have family and friends there. Thanks to L.A. friends who braved the traffic to come down for the day.  Sharing the experience and the work makes it all worthwhile.  It is good to catch up with colleagues, too.  Thanks to Mary Tabar for curating the exhibit... it looked great!  My small group went out for a delicious early dinner at a local Thai restaurant.  It was a long,yet satisfying day.  

I invite you to go see the exhibit, which runs until December 31.
