Galleries! Galleries! and More Galleries!

Oh My Gosh! Has it been a week since the last post?! It was a long busy week with Convergence--busy all day long and into the evening with dinners along with other meetings, then we collapsed in bed only to rise @ 5:30 AM the next morning to continue on the same path again. But, it was a fabulous week! Before we began the conference, we visited other galleries in Albuquerque and two in Corrales, which is just a short drive north of the city. A Fiber Arts Show at the Old San Ysidro Church was sponsored by local artists of Las Aranas Spinners and Weavers Guild who wanted to exhibit their work and the old church was the perfect setting. Members included the work of Deborah Jarchow , Connie Lippert , Liesel Orend , Sheila O'Hara , Linda Lugenbill, Nicki Bair , Phoebe McAfee, Yoriko Oki, Beverly Weaver, Cozy Swickard, Susan Bowman and Rosalie Nelson.

We stopped in Galeria de Corrales to view a few work from the hands of Pat Spark . We also ran into this little guy as he made his way across the landscape coolness. Next door to the galleria was a quilt shop Quilts Ole and it was necessary to pop in and see what was going on. Several of the gals were in the back room working on their double wedding ring fabric. The shop has a cutting machine--how great is that?!!
