2nd part of tour day

Here is a recap of the rest of day 1 – Surface Design Association Conference tour day. See the rest of the day here. Conference attendees were bused around the city to a number of galleries to view SDA sponsored exhibitions. What a day.

Gallery Nord – a great San Antonio gallery space, featured several artist exhibits:

Nathalie Miebach, “Weathered Waters” – a large-scale wall piece that looks at the ecological interactions between weather systems and marine environments in the Gulf of Main.

Eun-Kyung Suh – “Embedded Memory”

Kathryn Clark – “Foreclosure Quilts”

Maria Shell – “Color Grids”

  1. Goodness, I love this! My friend Lame Adventures (who was also a witness in my recent wedding) suggested I come visit. And, goodness, I can see why. My “spouse” Sara and I have recently moved to Cuenca, Ecuador. I am a writer/artist.


    1. Thanks, Kathryn. I remember hearing about your wedding! I’d love to visit Ecuador some time. I’ve been to Peru and I’d love to see more of South America and I’ll be checking out your blog!


    1. Thanks, V. I was so pumped for the whole time at the conference – it was amazing. Glad to share a bit of the energy. Thanks for recommendation to Kathryn!
