Art quilters update

As you may know, a few of us have been getting together to explore contemporary quilting the last couple of years. We have finally decided to call ourselves the "Art C Girlz".

We are currently displaying a collection of our works at the GOArt! Satellite gallery at the Senior Center, 2 Bank Street, Batavia. The exhibit will be up until the end of August. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 am- 4 pm. Contact GOArt for more information at, or 585-343-9313.

The picture above is a piece we all worked on together called "Convolvulous", which is the name of the flower. Below is a sample of what else you can enjoy if you go to the gallery.
