Members of our NC/SC SAQA region met on Saturday, June 6th at the Campbell House in Southern Pines, NC.  We were treated to a private viewing of the exhibit "Homefront & Downrange, Witness the Art in Military Life" in the beautiful Campbell House gallery.  SAQA member Kristin LaFlamme treated everyone to a discussion and tour of her fiber artwork; "Thank you Kristin!"  It was very moving to all who saw the works and understood the meaning of the pieces on display about the sacrifices made by our Country's military members and their families.  Another thank you goes out to Nanette Zeller who is the exhibit chair for this exhibition at the Campbell House  and made arrangements for us to meet at this lovely gallery.

We also met for social get together time, introductions, and show and tell.  It was nice to get to know each other better and see the diversity and creativity of our group of artists.  The SAQA trunk show was available for viewing and discussion and afterwards, the group headed out for lunch and some shopping.  What a great day!
