A Very Warm Reception

elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception7 This past weekend I spent a lovely time with friends and fellow artists at the opening reception of Connected by Stitch at the Gallery at Penn College in Williamsport, PA. This is the first exhibit mounted by the SAQA Pennsylvania region and what a beautiful exhibit it is in both the caliber of artwork and the spacious venue. Two pieces from my Infinity series are in the show. elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception1 elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception3 elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception4 elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception5 elena-stokes-connect-by-stitch-reception6 Many thanks to Meredith Armstrong, our SAQA PA regional rep and curator, and Penny Lutz, director of the gallery, for the long hours they put in to mount this exhibit, and to New Mexico mixed media artist Joshua Willis who was the juror. This is a very special exhibit not to be missed.

    What a beautiful exhibit! And your pieces are, as always, exquisite. I wish I could see it all closer! How long will it be up?

    Thank you so much, Heather! It really is a beautiful exhibit. It runs through December 8th. Have fun in Houston! Wish I could be there this year.

    Thanks for the great post Elena! What a wonderful exhibition SAQA Penn put together, but of course, not without the determination and efforts of Meredith Armstrong! It was great to see you again.

    I love your work in this show! And the title is great too-connected by stitch. It is always interesting to see what fellow artists are up to.

    I love this piece! Congratulations. Your colors are always right on the mark, but this one is my fave.

    This would be a great gallery to have. Are they taking new artists?

    Thank you, Sandra! From you that is high praise, indeed. The space is fantastic but I don’t think this gallery represents a stable of artists, rather they mount exhibitions with diverse artists and media.
