Western New York Regional SAQA Meeting

I was able to attend a great meeting of our Western NY SAQA group on Saturday. There were 30 of us in attendance! It has been quite a while since a regional meeting so the main agenda was getting to know each other. After lunch at the Gatehouse Restaurant, we all walked over to see two special exhibits that are currently showing in Rochester -- it has been quite a month for fiber art here!

Getting ready for lunch
After lunch, we gathered at the Booksmart Studio Gallery to view the Parallax exhibit - an invitational exhibit curated by Pat Pauly that is on view until June 25.

The gallery is a beautiful place to exhibit, as you can see from these photos.
Here are close-ups of just a few of the pieces on exhibit.
Fools and Followers, 2010 - Sylvia Einstein

Metamorphosis - Linda Bachman

Parallax Pattern - Sandra Townsend Donabed

Evidence - Terry Jarrard-Dimond
Afterwards, we also toured the Fibers Art International at the Memorial Art Gallery which is showing until July 3. Sorry, no photos allowed there.

Hope you have a chance to visit both exhibits.
