Caryl Bryer Fallert at Bryerpatch: A Wonderful Hostess
This is my last post about our trip to Bryerpatch Studio in Paducah, KY. Thirteen of the thirty-one artist who participated in the exhibit "The Everchanging River" drove to the opening of the exhibit. Several of us stayed at Bryerpatch Studio.
The second Saturday of the month, Paducah artist host open studio. Caryl decided that since many of the artist from the exhibit were staying with her that she would have a reception to meet the artist. Judy Schwender, curator of the exhibit was there and it was so nice to be able to talk to her after spending more than a year corresponding via email. It was such a pleasure to see Meredith Schroeder there as well.
Many of Caryl's Fiber Arts group came to meet us. How open and friendly everyone was. I have such a bad memory when it comes to people's names that I can't tell you who I met. However, there were several that I spend a lot of enjoyable time with talking about fiber art.
After everyone left we were invited to go to one of Caryl's friend's studio. I had a head ache and decided not to go. However, Caryl drove some of the other artist over to the studio. This was just another of the "beyond the call of duty" that Caryl did for us over the weekend.
I would love to take a class with Caryl and stay at Bryerpatch, maybe some day.
