Festival in Veldhoven

The second exhibition of our group in one month was a bit too much for me but everything was perfect this year in Veldhoven. Hanging of the competition quilts, light, organization. Lots of enthusiastic quilters, lots of friends who came to see the group's work, lots of feedback in form of critique and advice. At the end I am glad that I brought the collection to Veldhoven, there were some doubts before.


Hilde had a solo exhibition and brought new beautiful work

My friend Galina Kozulina 's quilt with stunning optical effect was selected for the exhibition in Berlin.
During the festival I met a nice man from Germany, Frank Guschmann, who made a lot of good quality photographs of the event and sent me a link to his album afterwards. I normally make a lot of pictures myself but not this time. All my time and energy went to telling stories about members of the group and their work to numerous visitors)). The majority of the public were Dutch quilters and they are very sociable and enthusiastic.
And my another friend, Corinne got a third prize in competition with her quilt "Peace"

Our humble group named Art-Igra was invited to take part in the textile exhibition in St-Pete. The grand  exhibition hall of All-Russia Artists' Union with beautiful light, balconies and marble stairs though has seen better days  is loved by local artists. It's an honour to be exhibited there, especially for an amateur.
