Fun-a-day reception / art show
Last night was the reception for our local fun-a-day project. There were a few dozen participants in the area, and last night the turn out was great! I got to meet some of the other artists, and see what everyone else worked on over the month of January! There are so many creative talented artists around here! It was pretty crowded, so I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked, plus I had the whole family with me, but here's a few I took last night. There were many others, including a set of dozens of earnings and jewelry, woodworking pieces, photos, videos, sketches, crochet and various other mixed-media projects.
Kids really like to touch things, and this town, and the art center are very kid-friendly. I made a mental note to keep that in mind next time I make an "art quilt". The ones I've made so far I really don't plan to wash, but in the future I think I'll try to keep them all washable so that kids can touch them, because they really like that so much!! My quilt is against the far wall in the top picture. I got a lot of nice comments about it! You can also see a few other fun-a-day projects along the wall to the right. I feel lucky to live in a town with such a neat center for the arts. They really do add so much to the community, and I'm thankful!!
