Surface Design Association Conference




I’m just home from the SDA conference in Kansas City. I took a workshop from Lori Glessner, entitled Experimental Drawing. It was a real push, but fun.

There was so much going on – workshops, demos, lectures, exhibits. Thursday night was the opening of the members show. 212 pieces, each measuring 52″ x 18″, were hung along the walls and from the ceiling. It was a real crush of people and I went back the next day to really see it and photograph it. What diversity.




Here is my friend, Mary Alice Hearn standing by her piece. I don’t think she realized it, I didn’t until I edited my photos, that her piece was one of the ones chosen to decorate one of the cakes at the champagne reception celebrating SDA’s 30th birthday.






People were wearing their art wearables:

And even dyed their hair. This is Pat Hodson from the UK who did a demo.




Friday night was the gallery tour plus it was Kansas City’s First Friday Gallery Walk, so it was mobbed. It was also the night for the trunk show.




Plus, I have to get in another picture of windows.
