Daily Fiber Intake Opens

Sunday, March 13, 2011 began in a flurry of activity.  Last minute details for the reception crowded our every thought, and dictated our every move: Sandwich board, check. Flowers, check. Name tags, Check. Food and Drink, Check.

Before long, the clock struck noon, and  the first of the musicians arrived from the Angelica Consort. We began our ritual of fretting about whether anyone would show up for the reception.  And like usual, we shouldn't have even worried.  Artists, friends, families, co-workers, trickled in a steady stream through our front doors, packing the Gallery, and making us wish for warmer weather so we could show off our new patio in the courtyard.  Music wafted down from the second door, sweet melodious tune after tune, while guests mingled and exclaimed over the work hanging on our walls and sitting on pedestals.
The Angelica Consort.
 Two hours passed almost too quickly, and our guests began to slowly make their way out the door. We were a little sad to see it end, a little glad the reception was a success, and a little hopeful that the artists involved were pleased.  Daily Fiber Intake will continue to hang in our space until April 17th, showcasing current students and alumni from Kutztown University's Fiber Arts department, under the head of Barbara Schulman. Please come, visit our Gallery, and see the brilliant works of these talented artists.
