Rochester Shows

I am off to Denver for the SAQA Visioning Conference - hope to meet many new friends and come back with many new ideas to support me in my artwork. One thing I do know is that I will have plenty of opportunities to be inspired by other artists over the new few months back here in Rochester.  We will be having an amazing number of fiber arts shows in Rochester this summer.

Here is some info on two coming soon.

  • The Genesee Valley Quilt Club will be celebrating its 75th Diamond Jubilee with its bi-annual quilt show. The show will feature over 600 quilts and will be held June 3-5 at Rochester Institute of Technology. There will be special events through out, including an Iron Quilter competition on Saturday and a silent auction on Sunday. On Friday, there will be a fashion show of some of the award winning garments made by member Priscilla Kibbee. The show will also be hosting the SAQA special exhibit, No Place to Call Home, that has been traveling around the U.S. for the past year. I am delighted to have one of my quilts in that exhibit.

    Rochester is home to an amazing group of quilters and the show two years ago was stunning and totally inspired me to move forward with my own art. I expect no less this time. It is definitely worth a trip to Rochester if you live any where within driving distance!
    •  The Kunstler Gallery of the Booksmart Studio will be hosting a special exhibit, Parallax: Views of Contemporary Art Quilters, from May 31 - June25. This will be a showing of works by nineteen artists whose work embodies the concept of parallax - presenting images and ideas from multiple perspectives. 
    Hope that you can add these shows to your calendar and take a peek. It will be well worth your time.
