Rituals at Festival in Long Beach

This is the layout of the front of the exhibit, which faces Main Street, and it is before we were done setting up.  But, you can see how the exhibit flows together.

This is located on the side, right after the coffee sign.  Aptly named, the coffee corner.  The SAQA Exhibition faced this section.
This is the back section

Side section on the right.  Tactile Architecture / The Artists Village faced this section
Come closer views

You can see Peggy Calvert on the row - she is cutting threads, and getting lint off of each quilt

Hanging Day at Festival in Long Beach

Hanging Day at Festival in Long Beach with Judy Coates Perez, Julie Schlueter, Peggy Calvert, Sherry Kleinman, Leslie Tucker Jenison and Jamie Fingal.  Here's to team work at its finest!  It just gets better and better!

It's alot of work to hang a show, with many components that have to be done.  The configuration of where each quilt is hung is done ahead of time.  The gathering of slats and lanyards.  Laying the quilts out in order on sheets.

Music stands up and ready to go - they hold the signs for sponsor name (Moore's Sewing Centers) and titles and artists statements

Peggy Calvert is cutting threads off quilts and running a lint roller over each quilt.

Judy Coates Perez and Leslie Tucker Jenison are making sure each quilt is the same distance from the top and the sides
The committee who rallied to get it all done by Noon!  Great job everyone!  We were like a fine oiled machine!

"no photography" signs are placed all at the same level along the front, sides and back.  You can buy the book!  Leslie and Jamie will be in the exhibit when the doors open at 5:00pm tonight1  Hope to see you there!  We will also be doing a curator walk thru on Friday and Saturday at 11:00am in our exhibit.

Rituals Book Available on Blurb!

Book cover art (Left to Right) by - Susie Monday, Susan Fletcher King, Judy Coates Perez, Desiree Habicht, Yvonne Porcella, Gerrie Congdon, Gayle Simpson

An exchange between friends. A handshake. A kiss before bedtime. The artist at work.  A sun salutation. The wave before boarding the school bus. A song, a word, a meditation. A habit, a custom.  The traditional toast at a gathering. A rite of passage. The sacred moments of the ordinary.  Rituals:  What are yours?
A collection of 42 Art Quilts 

 International Quilt Festival, Long Beach, CA  - July 26-29, 2012
