In San Francisco we went to the American Craft Council show at Fort Mason. We've gone to this show for a few years now and always like looking at the work. My favorites were Lynn Pollard http://broadwovens.com/indigo.html where we bought something similar to this
and Ealish Wilson http://ealishwilson.com
Her work was also at the San Jose Quilt Museum, where we headed next. The Museum's current exhibition is International TECHstyle Art Biennial 3, and it is fabulous. Here's a link to their Facebook page which shows a few photos https://www.facebook.com/SJQuiltMuseum.
I was not sure I would like this show, as I'm not a techie, but I loved it. In particular I loved the work by Julie V Garner http://www.julievgarner.com, who does woven photos, Rob Gonsalves and Anna Kristina Goransson, who did a beautiful piece with felt, lights and music, that I could have watched all day
Several of the artists were in attendance, and it was such a pleasure to watch Therese May http://www.theresemay.com present her work. I consider Therese one of the innovators of the art quilt movement, along with Yvonne Porcella and Jean Ray Laury. Therese brought a bag of tricks, pulling samples of her work out and sharing them with us.
My favorite was my friend Paula's work http://paulachung.com
Isn't that amazing.
