It has been a week since I posted, but honestly, I have been very busy! I finished up my four seasons piece for the Moving Outside exhibit. I created an 18 by 24 inch plastic sign for the exhibit and started plans for my workshop that I am doing at Trinity next month.
We installed the exhibit this morning and it really looks great. Up above is the piece by Betty Daggett and Jean Wells. They were inspired by a Chihuly installation, titled Call of the Wind.
This is Ephemeral, a lovely piece by Carol Heist.
I just love this horse by Chris Brown. It is fashioned from telephone wire and fabric bits. Click it to see it larger.
This is a piece by Janet Hiller from Eugene. She repurposed a quilt that she had made and had friends and family write messages on it. It is titled, An Old Story.
Barbara Friedson created these shoes with words and symbols, titled, Walk in My Shoes.
We all had fun helping Laura Jaszkowski lace bomb this tree. It is titled, Fragments. The streamers have childhood memories written on them.
Diane Born made this installation titled, The Spiral of Life.
Here is my piece. I wish I had taken a photo from farther away. I promise I will. We have steel rods inserted between each panel and at the ends. I awoke every night for the past two weeks, worrying about whether this installation would work. With the help of Mr C, it seems quite stable. Here is a detail shot of the winter panel so that you can see how I added some paint marks. I also coated the panels on both sides with Golden matte medium and I am hoping it will hold up to the inevitable rain.
Here is the sign that I made.
And here is the flyer I made to have at the SAQA conference. Hoping some people come by to see the exhibit.
Tomorrow, the conference starts and I have to be their by noon to wear my expert badge to help folks find their way around the hotel and Portland. I will be spending the next few days there. I will be at our exhibit on Saturday afternoon so if you live around Portland, come by and say Hi!
