So today we hit the Lawrence Street Gallery for the quilt exhibition and oooh la la, am I inspired! In addition to the exhibited quilts, we saw a bunch of little bitty art quilts. Man oh man am I ever gonna make some!
We saw a lot of amazing stuff, but what really blew me away were the pieces by Deborah Hyde. I saw the 1st, 2nd and last ones shown there, as well as at least one other (not shown.) Her mosaic squares are really small, and I just cannot imagine how much time these quilts must take. If I had $2,500 lying around, Gold Beach would SO be mine.
Being in the gallery, paired with listening to BG's mom talk about what happens when you turn 40, prompted me to become temporarily disoriented and take literature from the gallery on becoming a member with thoughts of displaying and selling my photos. I came to my senses shortly after we left the building. I think they use some kind of special air freshener in there which, in combination with the ultra-shiny things and gorgeous art pieces makes you susceptible to delusional fantasies.
In other news, the owl show was very cool. The screech owl (think Pigwidgeon) was adorable, and the curator's description of her cry as sounding "like someone beating a horse in the woods" completely cracked me up. Pictures tomorrow, hopefully.
Our garage sale was successful. We got rid of a lot of stuff and left the rest out with FREE written all over the friveway in chalk. Not much left at all, now. Hooray!
