|Barbara Lee Smith - only one among many of her textile pieces on exhibit.|
This photo doesn't do justice to Joan Dreyer's piece made of dental x-ray film and wire, in a radiator grill vase
. It is part of her two-person exhibit with Dianne Hricko at the Crane Building. Dianne's beautiful silk woods don't show up well, either - but here I am with my two friends. Dianne and Joan were two of the moving forces behind Fiber Philadelphia and Dianne's blog has some great behind-the-scenes posts.
One piece by Norma Minkowitz was at the Crane; she also had work at the Snyderman Gallery.
And here is a sample of the beautiful, not-to-be-missed, art cloth exhibit, Lines and Numbers, that Judy Langille put together at the White Space. This is by Sue Jones.
We did a huge amount of walking around the city, which is a work of art all by itself and is filled with murals and heart-rending old buildings. My favorite parts of this city are South Philly (South Street, Lombard, and environs) and the Old City, around Cherry St. and Third.
