I took a welcome break from checkbook balancing this afternoon and went downtown to see Textiles in a Tube 2. It's a lovely show, curated by Kathy Loomis, and like its predecessor TT1, all entries had to fit in a standard mailing tube. There is a preponderance of surface design and quilting techniques, with a nice sprinkling of 3D works, and one lone weaving, by Sandra, seen at left. Oddly, Sandra's piece is hung in exactly the same space as her entry last year in Textiles in a Tube 1. It's almost as if she's taken up permanent residence here in River City. Wouldn't that be nice! By the way, you can read in depth about the show on Terry's blog (and see more pictures, too).
While I was downtown, I took some pictures of the front of the gallery, which overlooks the Reedy River:
…and the view across the river (very muddy right now because of our recent heavy rains), with the ongoing construction of the Peace Center renovations:
Young and old were enjoying cooling off at the public fountain.
The fountain is three stories high and is a next door neighbor of the Riverworks Gallery.
