This weekend, a group of PAC friends headed up the Columbia River Gorge to the Maryhill Museum of Art to see the 'Gadzooks! Amazing Books' exhibit by Northwest Artists. I don't know which I liked better- the books or 'Le Théâtre de la Mode French Fashion Mannequin Collection'. Both run through November 15th.
We shared art and food and fed the peacocks in the shade .
Today, we visited the Japanese Garden
to sketch and see the High Fiber Diet Art show. Check out the Garden website for more information. The art quilts were inspired by wabi-sabi- "a sense of beauty of things that are simple, natural, sometimes rustic, and always quietly elegant". Karen Miller told us about the Japnaese stencil dye art of katazome. She gives a demo on her website.
