When I dropped off my quilt Forget Me Not, Collaboration with Grandma at the Pence Gallery last week I was given postcards to promote the exhibit. It was a very nice surprise to see that the gallery chose a detail photo of my piece for the postcard (bottom right).
The Pence presents its first juried exhibit of fine craft by artists and craftspeople residing in California, as selected by Julie M. Muñiz, Associate Curator, Design and Decorative Arts, Oakland Museum of California.
Selected artists: Marlene Bloomberg, Susan Brady, Beverly Crist, Dede deGraffenried, Alex Friedman, Tricia Goldberg, Mark Goudy, Bill Heiderich, Franki Kohler, Barbetta Lockart, Emma Luna, Chris Motley, Kathy Pallie, Liza Riddle, Jan Schachter, Louise Schiele, Jeff Snell, Matt Trethric, Melissa Woodburn, and Carolyn Zeitler.
The exhibit opens February 8 and ends April 4, 2013. Artist reception: Friday, February 8, 6 – 9 p.m.
There are several nice restaurants and shops near the gallery. I’ll be meeting friends for dinner before the opening reception. I can’t wait to see the exhibit!
