This week four of us from the Artist's Way Collective
drove down to the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Yarmouth
and hung our show
Sherry, Giselle, Nadine and I worked very hard that day!
Oh, yes, and Handy Hubby came to help too.
It was he who came up with the new way we hung my Daily Scratchings.
Because of restrictions at the gallery
we realized it could not hang it had in Annapolis Royal.
Richard had to come up with a new system
and I think it is a huge improvement and
much easier to hang.
So surprised was I to read Judy's hanging of her lovely piece
at The World of Threads Festival in Oakville.
Great minds think alike!
The continuous loops lend it a feeling of flow and continuity.
Two and a half years recorded in stitch.
117 feet of days gone by.
Hopefully it will be much longer by the time it is finished.
It is so very nice to see "Daily Scratchings - A Stitched Journal" hanging as a unit.
At home it is rolled up in small scrolls
in a basket
a beautiful basket
but not the best way to view it.
Nadine did a series of paintings about her alter ego Rosina.
Giselle hung many portraits.
Sherry hung her flower gardens.
And we all hung Grace's contribution of textile pieces.
We all had to do several paintings for this large collective piece.
So many colours
So many different styles
But I think it works.
When I got back home seven hours later
boy was I tired
Could hardly keep my eyes open after a simple meal.
The opening is on November 7th at 6pm.
All are welcome!
