"High Fiber Diet" Closing Reception

The Closing Reception for DAFA's Annual Show, High Fiber Diet, was a night full of inspiration, amazing work, and lots of good food. Jules Rushing's piece, Truck Quilt, was awarded Best In Show by juror Cynthia Padilla. Cynthia's rich background in textiles and design help provide thoughtful insight as to what makes a succesful piece.
