Exhibit

We went to a very interesting art exhibit the other day. Here are some of the things we saw. The picture of the shoes was taken by my uncle in Copenhagen. He is a great photographer, always taking pictures of the family. He has done some excellent work. We are so fortunate to have someone chronicling our family activities. I like the orderliness of the picture, reminds me of a quilt top.











The two small watercolors are by my friend Brenda, who is a hair dresser. The one of the nun is titled The Original Terrorist. I told her that was controversial and she said she was raised Catholic so she could do it.




























The small quilts are by a friend of Brenda's. I wish you could see the detail on her work, it is amazing. The figures are appliqu├ęd on the background. She has also combined hand quilting, machine quilting and embellishing. I was so disappointed to see that whoever did the displays had placed some objects on top of the quilts making them hard to see.

those quilted figures are very exhuberant, I feel like running around with them :-) And while the title of the picture of the nun might be controversial, I think its very funny....
