What a month October was! I'll see if I can catch up a bit with this post and maybe stay more current with the blog. So here goes...
September ended with final details of installation for "Woven Together"--the exhibit by Tapestry Weavers South members that was held in the Library and Technology Center at the University of North Georgia from Oct. 1-31. Pat Williams and I were co-chairpeople for the exhibit and the Joan Baxter workshop scheduled for Oct. 7-10. First, Here are a few views from the exhibit:
The exhibit was held on all three levels of the library with the long hallways being the primary display area. On the third floor there were two walls on opposite sides of the large reading room, in addition to the hallway that were used for exhibit. On one wall, tapestries were displayed.

But the first of the month was also busy with travel... in fact, at the end of September, my husband and I left for few day's trip to Baltimore.
We drove up to visit friends and to attend several events during the opening days of an exhibit at American Visionary Art Museum, "The Visionary Experience: St. Francis to Finster"
Before leaving Baltimore on October 3rd, we made a quick visit to the Baltimore Museum of Art, always one of our favorite stops when we're there.
Soon after our return, Joan Baxter arrived for the workshop that she was going to be teaching for Tapestry Weavers South. I mentioned a bit about her workshop in the last blog post but here are a few more photos.
A reception for the exhibit was held on October 8 and followed by a talk by Joan Baxter. Here's Joan talking to Terri Bryson and Joan Griffin, workshop participants, and Jon Eric Riis, one of the invited artists for the exhibit.
