Time Woven -- exhibit opening


The exhibit of my work at Moon Gallery, Berry College near Rome, Georgia, that I mentioned a couple of posts back is now up and the opening reception was last night.  What a thrill to see the work installed and to have a full room of guests.  Here are a few photos from the opening.

First, some photos from the reception...

And finally, after everyone left I had time to take photos of the four walls of the gallery.
I have a demo loom at one side near the installation of eight years of tapestry diaries.
I really like the large and open space of the gallery.  I appreciate being able to see the tapestries from across the room--this is the first time I've seen them from this distance and I find that the images do hold up strongly in a graphic way.  And that's what I'm hoping for as I design them.  There's lots to see in the color blending and some of the textural things within them when you walk up close, too.

The exhibit is up until mid-day on April 8.  The gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday-Friday.

Next week I'll return to Berry to spend time with students, particularly those who are working in the weaving studio of the student industries, Viking Creations.  My husband and I had a quick visit to see their studio yesterday afternoon.  I'm very impressed with the woven items they're producing for sale.  Check out their work on the Berry's website here.
