After 2 months on display in the Gallipolis City Park, the fiber guild’s first venture into the fiber bombing experience was scheduled to be taken down August 10. But at 12 feet high, our fiber embellishment of the street clock needed a huge step-ladder to remove, and our Columbus member, owner of the ladder, was felled by a nasty summer cold.
Several other members, either by illness, family emergency or work necessity, were also unable to come. So Nancy, Beverly, Cathy and Carol shared a picnic in the park. After enjoying the park flowers, they went to the nearby French Art Colony to see the Avant Garde Felt exhibit, featuring Marlene Gruetter and Barbara Morejon. See the previous post for an account of the opening of the exhibit and more pictures.
All in all, it was an enjoyable day–sharing snacks in the beautiful river-side park, concluded by the viewing of felted clothing, hats, purses and masks. “Dinner and a Show”?
