The 6-week run of our “Colorful Friendship: A Study in Fabric Surface Design” exhibit will be over soon and I thought I’d take you on a tour before we take it down April 1.
The local paper wrote an article about Evi and me and our art. The cover art is one of Evi’s beautiful silk pieces.
Here is a link to the pdf of the article: Colorful Friendship Exhibit Our article, written by my good friend and great writer Amy Abbott, starts on page 9.
It’s really hard to take pictures of this gallery due to all of the windows and the reflections on the glass cases. This gallery is located in the lobby of the art building on the campus of the University of Evansville. There are a total of 17 cases!
The large case includes our picture, our artist statements, and the two garments Evi sewed that combined both of our fabrics.
We decided with the remaining sixteen cases we’d alternate our art. I think it made for an interesting display.
Here I was telling Carla about this soy wax piece.
Ronda and Carla, part of the Art Girls, stand in front of one of my cases.
A few of the Newburgh Writers Group also visited the exhibit with me.
Kathy Sands drove over from Illinois to spend the day with me. We took some selfies when we visited the exhibit Saturday.
I’ve really enjoyed showing friends our art. Now I need to make some more!
Thanks for joining me on this exhibit tour. I hope you are having a creative Sunday.
What a lovely display, thanks for sharing your beautiful work.
Ellen, Thanks for dropping by! Lynda
Nice blog and newspaper article. The day you take the display down you could photograph it with the glass display windows open to eliminate the glare. Just a though.
Carla, great idea. However, I’m sure we will be just wanting to get the stuff down and in our cars!

Wonderfully presented. Such displays would draw people in and make them want to find out more and have a go themselves.
Irene, Thanks. My focus in my part of this exhibit was to show different surface design techniques and for others to say, “I can do that.”
Having a personal tour was a special treat! Thanks for spending time with Carla and I. A wonderful display of Silk Painting and Surface Design by two talented women.
Ronda, Thank you for letting me give you and Carla a tour of our exhibit. It was fun!
