I am posting the blog a couple of days early so that those of you who may be interested will have time to plan for the upcoming "Across Borders SDA Meeting". See 'News from Eve and Roz' in the May 2019 SDA blog post for further information re: parking, etc.

Rosalind Daniels highlights her love of abstraction in an exhibit that brings together her art quilts with her photographs. Stunning colors, abstract geometric shapes, and clean lines combine to create a visual display that pops. As a "recovering mathematician", her work speaks of her eye for line and detail.
