Prelude Reception

Saturday evening was the Opening reception of the Prelude show at Coconino Center for the Arts. This is a 'sampler' of artwork submitted by artists who are participating in this year's Open Studios, a two day show September 19-20. I am participating for the first time this year. I got there early so I could take some pictures, and I'm including a few here:
This is a beautiful jacket made with hand-dyed and embellished fabric by Sharon Richards.
Tammy Kelly is a local fiber artist who makes beautiful art quilts.
Marrianna Dougherty makes really beautiful one-of-a-kind purses and decorative boxes.

I'm sorry to say I did not make note of the artist who created this beautiful piece, but it is truly a work of art.
I decided to submit my 'Freeform' and I can honestly say that nothing else looked even remotely like it!
There were a great many more beautiful items on display, and if you are in the area between now and September 20, be sure to make time to visit the Coconino Center for the Arts, 2300 N Fort Valley Road in Flagstaff. I will be showing my art quilts and tie-dye at 2127 S Tombaugh Way Sept. 19-20, and would love to have you stop by!

Looks like a diverse and beautiful exhbit, Judy. Lucky are the people who get to see it in person.

That small, unusually shaped quilt makes me smile.
