Mary Lachman featured in Hartford Courant

I have two artworks in the SAQA-CT exhibit Local Color 3: Inspired by Science on view at the Windsor Art Center until mid-October.  If you have not yet had a chance to see the exhibit head on over.

Here is what the Hartford Courant wrote about Mary and Local Color 3!

Windsor Arts Center - Local Color 3

Happy Labor Day!  On Sunday we had a backyard cookout yesterday with my husband's family and Monday we are took it easy, except for dropping my car off at the mechanic's to check out the noise coming from the rear axle, and cleaning the house for the arrival of friends from Italy who will be with us for the next 10 days.

Saturday was the opening reception for LC3 at the Windsor Arts Center. The exhibit is beautifully hung and lighted so nicely. Thank you to Wanda Seldon, former member of the CT Fiber Arts Collective for curating such a fine show.

I didn't  take any photos at the reception but was interviewed by Dennis from the Hartford Courant! (I am still looking for the link to the story. When I find it I will post.)

Yes, I Volunteered

I am honored to be accepted as a Connecticut SAQA co-representative. I will be working along side Jan Doyle to inspire our local chapter of art quilters and fiber enthusiasts to reach their goals.

The image below was shown during a recent SAQA conference call during which three state reps (from California, Nevada and Pennsylvania) described how their chapters were able to raise additional funding to support workshops and outside speakers.   The PA chapter members made 4"x 6" fabric postcards to sell at their art exhibit. The PA-rep said the artwork flew off the shelves priced at $50 unframed and $100 framed.

Jan Doyle Interviews Mary Lachman on BCTV

In late July, Jan Doyle interviewed me and Christina Blais for her program Wyse Talk.  Filmed at Branford Community Access TV, Christina and I share information about the beginnings of SAQA and how it has grown in the past thirty years.  Viewers will learn how to join SAQA, what happens at regional meetings, and the benefits of membership.  (My husband, Dominick, manned the close-up camera. Jan said she wants to double his salary...he was a volunteer!)

Here is the link:
