Prepping for the Twelve Exhibit

Monday, September 17th, 2012

I have spent 2 or 3 days working on the artist statements for the Twelve by Twelve exhibit. I printed them on tabloid sized card stock on my large Epson printer. The problem was that they were in a horizontal format because the IQF shows placed them on music stands. Not having this available, I needed to punt. I carefully cut them in half and lined them up and trimmed them to the same size. I wanted to have them hang between the quilts and to save space, I used paper fasteners and attached two sets of artist statements together to hang between the two mosaics. I will post a photo after we get the show hung, if this works!! Here are the artist statements, all assembled.

By the way, in case you were wondering why I didn’t reformat them on the computer – they were pdfs so we were stuck with the format.

I did manage to get fabric and supplies from the workshop put away. And  I made a couple of 3 x 3s. Tomorrow, Mr C and I are delivering the quilts and signage to the expo center and will assist with the hanging.
