Helping to hang a quilt show on Friday got me in the “display” frame of mind for hanging my exhibit on Sunday. I truly enjoyed seeing all the wonderful quilts at this year’s Ann Arbor Quilt Guild show, but I did not bring my camera so no pics! All I can say is that if you weren’t able to make it, you missed some wonderful quilts!
Sunday–hang my exhibit day! In the grand scheme of things, it’s not huge, but it’s great for the space it’s in. There are two huge showcase windows in the front of the store, but I just couldn’t bring myself to put anything in them. I had sun damage from an exhibit years and years ago, and I’m just not going to have that happen again!
These are the pieces I chose to hang, but I didn’t have a dowel for one piece I wanted to hang. I just know I made it, but I just didn’t have it. And I may change out or add another piece…maybe something will sell and I’ll HAVE to bring in something new! Wouldn’t that be cool?
Not seen are a few small pieces that are placed on the shelves and some small pieces mounted on matboard and in bags.
Just getting myself organized enough to choose pieces to display was worth any effort I put into this. It’s very satisfying to have a body of work hanging and just step back and look at what you’ve done.
Details if you are in the area: Location is Pentamere Winery, 131 E. Chicago Blvd., Tecumseh MI. Artist Reception is Sunday, August 5 from 1-3, and everyone I know is certainly invited, along with any friends you’d like to bring! The exhibit will be up through Labor Day, so stop in any time…and check out the wine, too. It’s pretty darn good!
