Exhibition Hopping!

This week is the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas bi-annual conference being held
in Houston.  Always, an exciting time to shop, attend seminars, workshops, 
meet and greet new friends, hugs from 'old' friends/
Before I jump into the festivities of the conference, I
attend the special fiber exhibits being held in the city to
coordinate with conference.


First, stop is this excellent display of Ikat fashion pieces at Museum of Fine Arts--
entitled

"Colors of the Oasis: Central Asian Ikats showcases nearly 50 ikat robes and panels from the renowned Murad Megalli Collection of the Textile Museum in Washington D.C."
is a perfect connection the theme of CHT conference,
Crossing Threads:  Connecting Cultures.

sponsoring their Small Expressions--art at its smallest!


24 Artists will highlight the show, using their medium of different fiber techniques.
The pieces can be no  larger than 15" in any direction!  A major feat for any
artist.

SugarLand Art Center is hosting a special exhibit with items on
loam from Contemporary Handweavers of Houston members.

Busy day of exhibit hopping and then finishing up with my assignment
at the  conference check-in desk at Marriott to greet attendees!
