A Members Only reception drew enthusiastic crowd, including sponsors Barbara Fighera Harrison, Kathleen Gastgeb of Sew Smart, and Peter and David Mancuso.

“When you’re born you are wrapped in fabric,” says Barbara. “You’re wrapped in fabric when you die, but all the uses in between bring out our humanity.”

“Faith, focus and finish” define the artistic process for Barbarba, a quilt maker. “You have faith in yourself. You focus on the job you are doing, and you have the ability to finish,” she says.

A reception for Transmutations and Metamorphosis: The Collages of Ann Irwin, was also held. Overheard in the gallery: “This was not therapy – she was an artist.”
