Patrick Moore Gallery show opening!

All I can say is WOW- art openings in Salt Lake are a whole different animal than in Provo! We had great crowds, and the show looked fantastic! Polly and her assistants in the Surface Design group did a great job putting it all together.

This is the first room you see when you enter the gallery. Sidney, from my WAQ group, is signing the guest book. Out of the Blue (formerly known as Blue Tsunami) is hanging next to Jalaine's Bumps. Jalaine is also one of the WAQ group.

Here's the room with the food. The photo is fuzzy, but Jan Tolman did the small tree batik; below is is a piece by Patti Pitts. Chris Bramhall did the felted piece in the big frame, and the fiesta colored piece is also by Jalaine Taylor.

Here's a piece in the small room next to the 'food' room. Unfortunately, I can't remember who did it!

This is the largest room. I could not believe how well the fiber and clay pieces worked together!

The Best of Show piece is just to the left of the red outfit on the mannequin. It's Canopy, by Robyn Moriarty Kruppa- she's also part of our WAQ group!

Another WAQ member, Kathleen Deneris, had this piece haning opposite Robyn's. There is no way my photo can do it justice,you have to be close to appreciate this piece.

Sorry the picture is so fuzzy- this is hanging opposite Out of the Blue, in the first room. Patti Pitts did the yellow piece on the left, and Susan Madden did the tree quilt. Love the colors on both of them!

It was a wonderful evening, exciting and inspiring.

Now I am off to do the washouts on yesterdays dyepots, before I head off to Sunflower and Costco to grab some groceries. Results of the dyeing will be posted later!
