It’s a quiet rainy Sunday afternoon here so I have been spending some time looking through some of my old digital photos. I have been looking a lot lately at how different exhibitions are hung and what work seems to sit well beside others. I am not certain if our group exhibition will be hung by the Gallery staff or if we will be expected to have some input about how we want it to be displayed or even help physically with the hanging. I have not been involved much in hanging exhibitions but I did help at the Ararat Gallery with the findinghome@tapestry.ca.au exhibition. This exhibition toured Canada and Australia in 2005 to 2007 The American Tapestry Alliance hosted it as their first on line exhibition and you can see and read more about it here. I thought that it is a shame not to share these photos as they show the postcards and artist statements together. It was pretty exciting receiving a tapestry postcard in the mail. Maybe there were some participants in the project who never got the opportunity to see the exhibition. Enjoy!
