An Extraordinary Opening for Outside the Ordinary

The eight members of our small critique group, Joined by Stitch, were asked to put together an exhibit at the Essex Art Center in Lawrence. Housed in an old mill building, its high ceilings and brick walls create a beautiful background for fiber art. The Center staged a reception last Friday for our exhibit and for two smaller exhibits in their other galleries and so the fiber art was expected by some who attended and a complete surprise to others. The evening was a lively, well attended event--always an interesting time to talk at length about fiber art with people I just met, or people I know well, for that matter. I didn't get a photo of every piece but came close.
