We saw our friend Andrea Packard’s show at Swarthmore College last week on a gorgeous Spring-like day. Her landscapes are so full of beauty, joy and hope they mirrored the day — and took us on a little indoor roller coaster ride. Andrea’s works are made from cloth scraps, rug scraps, paper, prints, pastel and paint. Many of the materials come from friends or family and are significant to her. In a way she is turning these scraps into monuments that praise the world — and people. The works are special and magical, and it’s well worth the trip out to Swarthmore to see the show, which is up to April 3.
