Burien Arts Gallery - Opening Reception for Fiber 19's Bountiful Textures Show

Last Friday (November 6th), was the opening of the Fiber 19's Bountiful Textures Show.  

The Burien Arts Gallery is a fabulous place!  It's located in downtown Burien - and wow has Burien changed a lot since I was last there (about 30 years ago)! 

There was incredible appetizers, lots of wine, and lots of great conversation!  The show looks GREAT!  A big thank you to Louise Roby, Barbara Matthews, and TerryBerg for curating and organizing theshow!! 












Our show Bountiful Textures will be up from now until December 27th.  There is not only artwork available to see and purchase, but lots of wonderful smaller gifts as well!







AND a big thank you to the Burien Arts Center for offering Fiber 19 the opportunity to hold our show in their lovely gallery!!!
