Last week I was lucky enough to go the Quilt Exhibition in the Queensland Art Gallery (again!) for the third time and I don't think I will ever tire of it! It's amazing how you still manage to see something new each time. Making it even more interesting was going on a guided tour this time. Still learning so much about these beautiful quilts. We also managed to see the Ruth Stoneley exhibit that is showing at the Art Gallery.
Such beautiful quilts and so detailed and intricate. She really was an exceptional artist.
You were able to take photos in this exhibit, so I was very happy snapping away!!!
Just a couple of little purchases this time... A book on Ruth Stoneley's quilts at the Art Gallery and a couple of postcards depicting the 1700's quilts.
Before we left we went in to see this painting.... It's called "Monday Morning"and is by Vida Lahey. I have always loved this painting and my uncle (who I visit the Art Gallery with often) actually has a print of this in his house. We went to look at it specifically as one my friends is the great niece of Vida Lahey..I couldn't believe the coincidence when she took us straight up to this very painting. I just love it. That's Adrienne (the great niece) trying to escape in the photo!
Hope you all had a lovely weekend...
And hope you have a great week!
