November 2015 - Upcoming shows: Newberg and more

We got right down to business this month discussing the details of our upcoming show at the Chehalem Cultural Center in Newberg, Oregon. The show will hang from December 22, 2015 to February 27, 2016, with an opening reception on Friday, February 5, 2016 from 7 to 9. That opening will coincide with Newberg’s Art Walk which should give viewers lots to see in and around the CCC.

We are also making plans for our show at the Chessman Gallery in Lincoln City in October 2016. The group is excited to be including 3-D pieces along with the art quilts that will hang on the wall. Group members have several types of 3-D works in mind so this should result in a show with strength of variety as well as creativity.

Some concrete design ideas are emerging for our April 2016 show on the subject of Urban Landscapes. An exact title is still a little up in the air, but the subject matter is firm, and Portland is providing change in spades to inspire us!

Several people brought in "Show and Tell"to share with the group.
Elaine showed many pieces that she discharge-dyed at the last SAQA meeting, held at OCAC:
