Lisa Yoder was our wonderful docent for the tapestry exhibit. It is an amazing exhibit with a wide range of art from representational to abstract, very small to massive. The insights behind the pieces and the artists that created them was fascinating. Two other fiber exhibits, Ree Nancarrow and Elin Noble, are hanging making for a great day of art. There are other amazing galleries in the area and a wide variety of restaurants. It is always a great day and a fabulous mini vacation.
David and I brought our Maps quilts (Bit Map and It's the Journey) to give to the QOTW exhibit chair as they are slated to travel to the PIQF show in October. As we were unrolling them to show to Beth a visitor to the museum had the most amazing reaction. She gasped, put her hand over her mouth and was just transfixed over the quilts. She kept saying how amazing they were. Let me tell you, as an artist, it was just the most amazing thing to experience. We create in the solitude of a studio. The art travels to shows you cannot attend because of work schedules or time constraints. David and I don't often see the reactions of the general public. It was gratifying and humbling to see the impact we have with our art.
Have you impacted someone with your art? Was it the reaction you designed the quilt for?
