Artists Reception at San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles

I made an appearance at an reception today at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles. As I mentioned before, I have a quilt in the Tasty Too! Exhibit. But the big exhibit is Metamorphosis, a mostly wearable art exhibit. It is outstanding! See it if you can!

This is my quilt, "Cubism Meets Baltimore," hanging at the SJMQT. I feel so honored! It is an oldy but a goody.

The Metamorphosis exhibit had some great pieces. I was quite taken by this sweater attributed to Kaffe Fassett. There were other mind-blowing pieces, but I don't remember their names. Highly recommended!

I took this photo of the crowd. I didn't know anyone except for the curator, Deborah Corsini, whose memory I am grateful for. Also Yvonne Porcella was there. She probably doesn't remember me, but I have taken a class from her, plus I sat next to her at the last Dinner at Eight dinner in Long Beach. I saw her during the artists tour but then lost track of her. But there she is, in the red vest! I didn't notice until I posted this photo.

In my defense, the reception room was dark. The flash on my camera lit up the room for the photo.
