Although it was short notice, I was happy to be asked to do this one since I hope to have more solo shows in the future. It’s a beautiful gallery adjacent to the fine arts department and inside a performing arts center.

The gallery is sort of an L-shape configuration with glass walls on one side — allowing visitors to the performing arts center an almost full view of the artwork when the gallery is locked after hours.

Looking at Deidre Adams website yesterday made me realize that websites are wonderful for show for showing art, but seeing a photo of a real-life installation can re-frame how we perceive what we’re seeing in an internet gallery. Scroll down to the very bottom photo of this series to see one.

  1. It’s looking good! And you are so right about seeing the work in the context of a gallery or whatever. It provides quite a rounded view of the work. Good luck with the show.

  2. amazing. your quilts looks so incredible together like that and it’s great to get the distance from them. what a great opportunity for you – congrats. Still love that alien tractor beam quilt – and love the aliens up in your banner too.

  3. Your installation looks wonderful. Can’t wait to see it in “real life.” I did go to Deidre’s site and scrolled down to see her installation and I was immediately struck that all her pieces were the same size. And yours are all a similar size. Both look very good. Something to think about. Another personal challenge.
