A Weekend of Art

Ted and I headed up to San Francisco this weekend to immerse ourselves in art.  Our first stop was to Monterey to see this little guy.  He started walking the day after we were there.

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.
