This should be a real treat. Two photographic exhibits will be in place in the large Gallery Rooms. Susan has offered a tour and will answer questions about hanging an Exhibition - and as a long time Gallery Curator with experience selecting and hanging many exhibits including fibre (Synthesis II was in both Galleries), will share what SHE is looking for in choosing work for the Gallery.

And, don't forget to participate in our popular BRING, and BUY OR TRADE TABLE... any fabrics, threads, books, products or other studio treats you have discovered and want to share, or no longer need, could be exactly what someone else has been looking for.
