Fun Day in San Diego with SAQA Friends

I spent the last few days in San Diego and, while there, I was able to hook up with two SAQA members I have come to know - Jeanne Marklin and Kathleen McCabe. Jeanne and I were both in the Taiwan International Quilt Exhibition last year; Kathleen curated the No Place to Call Home SAQA exhibit which toured a few years ago. Both are great company. Since Jeanne was also visiting San Diego and staying near me, Kathleen, who lives in San Diego, offered to take both of us on an art adventure.

We visited the Visions Art Museum to see their exhibit Quilt Visions 2012 which is on view through February 17, 2013. I wasn't able to take photos of the exhibit but it is really worth a visit.

Later in the day, we drove over to the Poway Center for Performing Arts to see Creative Inspirations - a show by the SAQA SoCal SoNev region which will be on view until January 29, 2013. Kathleen has two pieces in the exhibit and I was able to see two works by another of my SAQA internet friends, Linda Miller.

It was a wonderful day and I am looking forward to seeing Jeanne and Kathleen again in Santa Fe in April for SAQA's Annual Conference.
