Visit to the Everchanging River Exhibit at NQM

Last Saturday morning thirteen of the thirty-one artist who participated in the Everchanging River Exhibit visited the exhibit at NQA in Paducah, KY. Judy Schewender, cureator at the museum took us on a tour of the museum. Judy allowed us to take photos of our exhibit but nothing else.

After Judy secured our exhibit she decided that she would fill the gallery with quilts that have to do with a river. Wish I could have photographed those because her choices really complimented our exhibit.

I recognized many of the artist who Judy had chosen for the exhibit. Sue Reno, Betty Busby, Elizabeth Ziebreth and Ann Harwell and many more. I hope that you will be able to visit before the exhibits are taken down March 7.

Judy treated our group so well, more about that in a later post. Six of us stayed with Caryl Bryer Fallert in her Bed and Coffee establishment. We could not have been treated better if we had been royalty. After the holidays I will post on Caryl's place and her gracious hospitality.

The whole experience was a once in a life time occasion and one that we will never forget. Marge Edie and Husband Dan, Barbara Tenneyson, Janet Ginn, Dixie Haywood, Diana Pickens, Veronica Moriarty and myself from the Focus group was there. Judy Rapelje, Bonnie Ouellette, Heidi Wolko and her husband Manfred from the Thread Heads, JoAnn Amidone, Dee Dobler and Sandra Baker were there from the Fringe Sister.

I will post more about the experience later.
