Art Quilt show in a public gallery
Last week I took 9 quilts and about 20 watercolors over to the Regional public library and they were hung and arranged by Tatiana Veneruso, an art installation expert with Athens-Clarke County.
She and Van Burns spent over 4 hours hanging and arranging the work and it's a beautiful job.
The library was also kind enough to give me an opportunity to speak about my work and this was followed by a reception.
It's always interesting to see how somebody who has arranged and hung many shows decides to arranges your work.
I had planned the paintings on one wall, the quilts on the others, but it's kind of fun to see them hanging together.
The arrangements are very interesting and it's a beautiful long narrow light room...and any library patrons can wander in and curl up in the comfortable armchairs, read and enjoy the artwork.
So tell me what you think about mixing the two mediums in one show.....also ...any stories about your own experiences with hanging in public spaces. I have always preferred having a show in a space where many people visit, rather than in a specialized gallery where few go.
And, if you have been, thanks for reading!!!! Elizabeth
