Michael Berry G!allery Show Opening

Friday night our Utah Surface Design biannual gallery show opened at the Michael Berry Gallery in downtown Salt Lake.  I helped to start hanging the show last weekend, and came up to Salt Lake Friday afternoon to photograph the gallery and every piece for the group.  I'll have those to show later- I haven't even had a chance to get them off my camera!

Most of my family made it up for the opening, so I got Sean to take a picture of me with my piece, using my iPhone.  So here you have it- after all that work, my baby is out in the world!


John Hess had two beautiful dimensional and holographic weavings in the show, one hanging below Autumn Splendor.  Marilyn Fashbaugh's quilt is hanging to the right of mine, and two fantastic hand dyed silk scarves are below.  (If my memory is any good, Judy Elsley did the one on the left, and Sally Wilkinson the one on the right.)  I can't remember who did the weaving on the left side of my quilt- it was also at the Weaver's Guild show earlier in the year, and caught my eye there.

The show is beautiful, it came together really well.  Lisa Chin, another USDG member, has lots of pictures posted on her blog here.   Enjoy them, because I have no idea how long it will take me to get all the pictures I took off my camera and edited!

I am now frantically working on my next Tangled Textiles piece, due the 30th.  I was going to piece it, but decided that I just didn't have the time, and my idea would lend itself equally well to fusing.  So it is all ready to be machine quilted.  Now to just to find the time and energy to get that done!  (I'm sensing another mental health day home from work on the horizon!!)

Hope your week is a creative one!

Congratulations in getting your showing off the ground. Your Autumn Splendor looks stunning up there on that wall, and isn't that one of your hand dyes around your neck that I see?

Looks like a great show and I am sure your piece adds to the greatness.

Your work is a "show stopper", in my opinion. Congratulations!
