Bennington Art Guild Gallery opening


The opening at the Gayle Garrison Gallery in the Bennington Arts Guild gallery on Friday night was wonderful! It was hot outside, and very warm inside, both from the weather and the friendly faces who came to support me and Josh Primmer. We had lots of compliments about how well Josh's pottery and my art quilts made for a cohesive exhibit. Josh and I both agreed that Ceil Petrucelli had a good idea when she invited us to exhibit together.

I love hearing what people say about my work, because they see things that I don't and it's always interesting to hear how it is viewed. "Evocative" was a word I heard from several people, and I liked that. The exhibit will be up until July 29, so if you're in the area, please stop by. There are lots of good restaurants in Bennington, and a great bakery around the corner from the gallery. Tempt you yet?

  3. Hi Jeanne - sounds like a great exhibition. I like the idea of bringing two different forms of art together in one space. Congratulations on your 'evocative' work. Joe from TextileArtist.org
