Twenty-one SAQA members from LA/Ventura/Santa Barbara counties (and beyond) met Saturday, May 15, at the home of Felisa Lyons. As we enjoyed the fabulous view from Felisa's living room/studio, we shared our work and what we were doing 21 years ago when SAQA was born.
After a short business meeting, we were treated to demonstrations from Pam Klebaum and Jeanne Surber. Pam showed how to mount textiles on Plexiglass for hanging, which we all agreed would make our work more appealing to buyers who don't understand how to hang textile art.
Jeanne, who owns Jandi Designs with Andi Perejda, demonstrated the technique of Thermofaxing. She and Andi sell both stock and custom designed silkscreens through www.jandidesigns.com.
After the meeting, Felisa relieved our hunger with lunch, pool-side! Thanks, Felisa, Pam, and Jeanne!
