Balancing Act's Opening Reception

The opening reception was just wonderful! The wonderful people at Lawrence Street Gallery had hors devours and a musician playing a keyboard. There was wine on hand, wonderful ambiance and an amazing display of artwork. The photo above is what greets people as they enter the gallery, with Virginia Spiegel's work front and center introducing the exhibit inside.

Below is the view of the gallery when you first walk in. As you can see, many people were taking their time admiring the work on hand. And who can blame them! The quilts are even more amazing in person. The details and textures demand that you stand and study each piece.

Here is another view of the quilts hanging on the long wall when you first walk in.

The next few photos show the various groupings of quilts. The wonderful artists at Lawrence Street did an outstanding job placing the work. (Thanks Deb and Laura!!!)

Below is a shot of Joan Potter Thomas with her artwork, "The Edge of Spring" series.

And here is Karen Olson with her artwork, "Tablets."

It was a wonderful evening and I was very excited to meet and visit with the artists in the exhibit. Many ventured very long distances to be with us! Thanks Ann and Cheryl! :)

The exhibit is gorgeous and I can't thank everyone enough for all the hard work they have put into it. Special thanks to all the artists for creating such wonderful artwork and sharing it for the exhibit. And a gigantic thank you to the folks at Lawrence Street gallery, especially Deb Hyde and Laura Host, for the opportunity!
