Marci’s First Anniversary Tea Party

This spring Fiberarts Editor Marci Rae McDade gave a gallery tour of two fiber exhibitions on display at the Museum of Contemporary Craft (MCC) in Portland, Oregon—Darrel Morris: The Large Works 1999–2009 and Mandy Greer: Dare alla Luce (Fiberarts April/May 2009). After the talk, guests joined her for a tea party to celebrate her first anniversary as editor of the magazine, hosted by MCC Curator Namita Gupta Wiggers. A sumptuous carrot cake was topped with a digitally-printed sugar version of the Fiberarts April/May 2009 cover which showcases one of Greer’s crocheted art-to-wear creations.

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend, and for those who couldn’t, here are a few images and a podcast excerpt from the tour.
