FIBER ART - THE COLOR OF NATURE EXHIBIT - NC ARBORETUM, ASHEVILLE, NC
April 21 - July 11, 2016
BEHIND THE SCENES - Anyone who has ever volunteered to hang a quilt show knows it can be a lot of work. This is a tad different, given we only had about 90 pieces with 4 people to hang them, but it still took us many hours!A blank slate awaits....allowing us to determine the location of each piece. We have 2 narrow areas, and two much larger spaces that all flow together.
We are continually surprised at just how well our pieces complement each other. We don't attempt to display the work of each maker in separate locations, rather we think mixing them together keeps the viewers attention as they wander the exhibit and experience style and color changes.
We had so many pieces that many will be presented one above the other.
Here we are in the upper lobby of the NC Arboretum in Asheville; Mary Stori, Judy Simmons, and Kate Weston......nearing the end of our hanging duties in front of one of Kate's quilts.
Check back again....I'll have some photos of the pieces hung. Also, hop over to Judy's blog to view addtional photos.
