A Quilty Jaunt -- CFAL exhibit in Baton Rouge

Louisiana State Archives

On Thursday Richard and I took a little jaunt to see some quilts. We were off to see the Contemporary Fiber Artists of Louisiana (CFAL) exhibit at the Louisiana State Archives building. 

Having the exhibit here is a brilliant idea since the

state archives' job "is mandated to identify, to collect, to preserve, to maintain and to make available those records and artifacts that enhance our endeavors to understand the dynamics and nuances of our state's remarkable history." 
The Archives building has its own collection of artwork, which was a wonderful surprise. I'll show those pieces in another post later.

This post is about the CFAL exhibit, but these are only about half of the photos that I took. It's going to take a few days at home to finish.

Richard and I had the luxury of time and solitude while we were there. Imagine being able to wander through, go back, take pictures. Go back again, look closely. No, closer. Go back and take a few more pictures.

Wendy Starn -- Into the Woods

Wendy Starn -- Fatsia Fantasy

Nancy Hinds -- Found Objects

Before closing I want to point out this last piece from my friend Glen. I've mentioned her a few times in other posts. She's the blogger behind Quilts and Dogs, and I admire her work more than she could know. 

Glen Parks -- One Road Through Town

What a great way to spend time! Some delightful quilts, and I especially love Glen's One road through town!

It was lots of fun, Jenclair, and we saw many interesting quilts. I wouldn't usually put Richard through driving to two cities in a day, but he seemed willing. Yes, Glen's "On road through town" is interesting. I wondered if she got the idea when she drove through one of our little towns on her way to do a presentation for our guild. I have to ask her!
Thanks for visiting!
