Threads of Conversation - opens this week!

Sharon Rowley, one of the jurors for this show shares this about the show:

As we jurors have come to expect from CQA members, the entries featured strong design characteristics and execution. This show, though, will live up to its name, “Threads of Conversation”, because there is a lot for the audience to discuss! The variety of styles alone is quite something; representational (“Spring at Lake Cushman”), evocative (“Coral Pollen Pearls”), abstract (“Cedar Path”), and whimsical (“Hangover III”). Techniques and materials go well beyond traditional to invite the viewer to come in close and explore (“Dark Secrets” and “Coscinodiscus”).
