Didn't know I was sick, did 'ya? Actually, didn't feel well all week -- too tired to blog or comment on others' blogs. Infection traced to fractured tooth, now gone. Today, feeling back to myself: amazing!
Today, Rachel Cochran and I finally went here to see the exhibit Art Quilts: Contemporary Expressions From the Collection of John M. Walsh III.
The museum was busy today: thundering hordes of marauding schoolchildren and a pretty substantial group of grownups who had come to see the exhibit. Lo and behold, who else should we run into but friends Natalya Aikens and Vivien Zeph! What fun - and what a coincidence. I wished Benedicte felicitations on winning the SAQA Cream award for her quilt in Elements (another exhibit on Rachel's and my "to see" list).
We had gotten about halfway through the exhibit when I heard Jack Walsh's voice. I thought it was an audio tour and when I turned around, to my delight and surprise, there was Jack in person, giving a tour to a group of women his cousin had brought to see the exhibit. Below, he is talking about Joan Lintault's Bee quilt.
Valerie Goodwin to make for him. It is a triptych she blogged about while she was working on it. Fabulous!
