Recently, I attended an art opening celebrating artists new to the gallery called Arts On Douglas in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. It was well attended with many people I knew as well as many new to me. The gallery space is marvelous and the art there is always a delight.
One of the artists is a friend of mine and it has been so inspiring to watch her work grow over the years. She recently had a one-woman show at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, Colorado and now is represented in this gallery. Her name is Bobbi Baugh. Here is a photo of some of the art at the show at Arts on Douglas. I tried to get some good photos, but the lights were from above and there was some glare. I love her printmaking techniques and the layering she does.
I love fossils so I'm especially fond of this one.

So, lucky for me, I get to go to an artist opening or reception at least once a month. And I never leave disappointed. There is always inspiration in the art and the artists. I hope that you will seek out galleries and museums in your area to visit and to support no matter how small they are and that you will take friends and family with you to discuss what you see and exchange viewpoints. I'm linking this to Off The Wall Friday where you can find other art quilt blogs. Please make comments on their posts to let them know you stopped by. Thanks for visiting.
