Wall Art: A Retrospective at Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum
I was asked, year before last year, if I would hang an exhibit of my work, at the Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum in Carrollton, GA. in 2014. Time has a way of flying by, and while I planned for the exhibit, I didn't decide until early this year, how I wanted my work represened. I finally decided that I have been making fiber art long enough, to do a retrospective.
My schedule this year is pretty full, so I wasn't able to deliver my work and have a hand in hanging the exhibit. The staff at the museum did a great job. Had I given them input, which I did not, I might have hung each of my series together. This was my fault not the museums. I did not verbalize this message to the.
The staff, I know many are volunteers, has done a wonderful job, and I want to thank them for asking me to exhibit there. Unfortunately, I won't be able to see the exhibit while it is up. I asked my friend, Beverly to take photos for me and I send her my thanks.
I was a bit concerned whether I would have enough pieces to fill their space. Years ago, before the actual museum building was remodeled, I was asked to teach my "Fabricating Nature" class through the auspices of the museum. Because of that, I suggested that they might ask some of my students to display their work along with mine. The photos below are from that group.
