And the reviews, er, review is in!


Thanks to all who attended the opening reception of my show at the the UCF Women's research center. http://womens.research.ucf.edu/Events/2010/harris_elizabeth.html It was mahvelous, simply mahvelous, dahling! The wonderful folks at the center did a lovely job of stocking goodies and wine and lots of folks stopped by. Thanks Leslie and Fran! The show will be up until Feb. 15 and available for viewing M-F, 9-4. So if you didn't make it, there's still time. The UCF student newspaper sent a reporter and photographer to cover the show and the review appears here:

Unfortunately, as of this writing, no pictures appear in the story. Maybe that will change.

I was thrilled that I had several sales at the opening and another was called in to me just today. Awesome! Thanks to all of you who purchased some of my pieces. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them!

January show

I had mentioned this a few posts ago and promised to post more details when I had them. Well, here they are: my one woman show entitled "Disparate Threads" will be having an opening reception on January 13 from 3-6. I'm so excited! Its been a very long time since I've been the only one in a show and this will be the first time that will solely feature my textile pieces. Woo-hoo! The pieces I will be displaying demonstrate a wide thematic range. Included are botanical, celestial, solar, abstract, and allegorical quilts. Hence the name of the show.

For all of you folks in the Orlando area, I cordially invite you to attend. The reception will be held in Suite 360 of the Research Pavilion Building at 12424 Research Parkway in Orlando (just south of the UCF campus and east off of Alafaya Drive). Please see the details at the link: http://womens.research.ucf.edu/Events/2010/harris_elizabeth.html

Hope to see you there!
