RAFA Exhibit Opens at ACC Gallery

Eighteen members of RAFA (Rochester Area Fiber Artists) are participating in our first group exhibition, which is on display at Rochester's Arts and Cultural Center Gallery until January 2, 2008. The exhibition kicked off with a reception on Friday evening, November 16th. Over 150 people attended the opening; the atmosphere was charged with excitement and the space showcased the diverse works beautifully. Janet Root created the gorgeous centerpiece in this conference room that adjoins the gallery space where we served wine and hors d'ouvres.

For many members, it was the first time they had seen their pieces hung in a gallery space. Pat Pauly oversaw the installation of the work and the results were beautiful.

The richly colored textiles, diverse styles and sizes blended together wonderfully and garnered an extremely positive response from the people attending.

This gives you a fairly good view of the overall gallery space and shows Marcia DeCamp on the right, Barb Seils, center, and my back. We're already making arrangements for a future exhibition at the Arts & Cultural Center.

  1. Jeanne,
    Congratulations on your show, I hope it is successful. My show opened on Nov. 21st and I have 7 pieces ala Jeanne Beck in the show. I've sold 2 of them and a lot of bin stuff. I'm still looking forward to the San Antonio class, any word on when that will be?
