Now that Quilt Festival is over for this year and Seasonal Palette has had itâ€™s grand opening everyone is free to post those long awaited pictures! My entry is called “December Dawn”.
Click here to see them all.
The process began with submitting photos of existing work from which 37 artists were selected to produce seasonal works measuring 78 x 32â€ť each. The working styles of the selected artists are vastly different, coming together to stage an amazingly cohesive body of work. The exhibit was staged in an enclosed, hard walled space with a tranquil gallery feeling that was so calming amid the crowds and bustle of the show floor. In progressing around the space, one walked through the seasons. In the center of the space was a table where artists journals of the making of each piece was displayed, with benches so you could sit and spend as much time as you wanted with the journals and the actual artworks. I wish I had had enough time to read each and every one!
There is a lovely catalog of the exhibit available for only $20.00 showing each piece with a more in depth view of the making of some of them, including â€śDecember Dawnâ€ś at the end.
At this premier opening, already two pieces were sold!Â I have been enjoying the posting of the making of some of the pieces as they are posted to blogs, so starting tomorrow I will begin to publish entries from my own journal.
