When last we spoke, friends, we were talking about Love. And, you know, how love is love is love, you know, in quilt form. And RealLife was just about to implode on me and become much too much to handle.
And I shared some IG shots from my summer solo show in Easton, PA. It was a lovely time of sharing my work with my “home” community and getting to reveal myself a little more to folks who don’t really know me much. Hence, the title of the show was Cottoning On.
The gallery staff, Michiko Okaya, Jim Toia, Erica Hutchins, and Wendy Sterling, were the best partners on the install, managing the needs of visitors, arranging the coordinated events (opening reception, public lecture, and a yarn bombing (more on the yarn attack later)), and generally just being their amazing selves. There were many attempts to document the show and the events and lots of photos resulted. [Local photographers, Tom Kosa and Kevin Vogrin, get the main credits. The first two below are Kosa; the rest are Vogrin.]
Here’s a blast of photos. My favorite is seeing people interact with the work and respond to the lecture.
More about this fresh freedom finish soon…
Whew. It turned out okay.
I’ll see you sooner next time.
Have a great weekend!
