Library Show



Yesterday I was part of the hanging committee for the show at the Mahopac Library. You can read about the show here. As you can see from the pictures, all of the art was mounted on white stretched canvas. I think it gave a wonderful cohesiveness to the show and also made each piece pop. Hanging them all at the same height was a challenge, even with all of our measuring. The canvases had wire on the back and since some were a little tighter or looser each picture went up differently. Rare was the canvas that got it right the first time. I think that the show looks great and as with most fiber art, you have to see it in person to really appreciate it. I hope you will stop in and see it if you are in the area. The opening reception is next Sunday, March 8 and the show will hang March 2-April 3. All of the info is on the postcard.
Many thanks to Nancy and Carolyn, my fellow hangers, and to Carolyn for the use of her photos.








Thankfully we planned to do this hanging yesterday. Snow was forecast for the morning, but it never came. Today is another story. It started snowing late last night and into this morning. We got about 7 inches and it is very cold and windy. I'm so glad I can stay inside all day.

These look great! Great decisions to mount them all on the white - they POP off that caramel colored wall!

Looks like a beautiful show Norma! I recognize the first quilt in the first pic as yours :). I love the way they are all mounted on the same size canvas. Wish I could see it in person!
