Friday evening I went to the opening reception for the EDGE Material Conversations exhibit at the Sabatini Gallery in the Topeka Library. The exhibit looked great. I loved how my pieces looked, especially “Harrier Hunting” and “Spring Encounter”. Each was hung alone on a different yellow painted wall that really made the colors pop and brought out the yellows within the artwork. “Bignonia” which features yellow flowers was hung on a white wall. The lighting really enhanced the quilting highlighting wonderful texture. I did not bring my camera, thinking that photos would probably not be allowed, but I may go back and see if they will let me get some photos later, as they are just too good to pass up! The remainder of the exhibit was more abstract and it is always fun to see what everyone is doing and how the works play together.
If you are in the vicinity between now and the middle of Aug, I hope you will try to see it!
