Architectural Elements at Etui

Every year our group, under the wise tutelage of our leader, Jane Davila, puts on a show.  Previously the exhibits had been at the gallery in the Mahopac Library, a very good spot with a large reception room.  It seems that that space has become so popular that they will only allow a group to exhibit every other year.  We had to come up with a new venue.  Many ideas were thrown around and then Jane's friend, Julie Saviano, was about to open a new fiber shop in Larchmont, NY. called Etui Fiber Arts. It would carry some fabrics, yarns and other fiber related items and would have a small gallery in front.  It sounded perfect. And it was!  We decided on the theme of Architectural Elements and the size was restricted to 14" wide by no more than 20" high.  There would also be some pedestals and some members opted to make freestanding pieces that would fit into narrow wooden stands.

Julie will put up a new show every month so this one will come down at the end of this month, April. It is a lovely show and well worthy of a visit and you may even find something to purchase in this wonderful new shop.

Each one amazing unto itself, but the whole collection is simply outstanding (if I do say so myself!). Thanks for photographing and posting!

What a wonderful exhibit. Really fascinated by how each artist interpreted the same theme... they are all so different!
