Exhibition set up at last and sneak look at latest Wikio rankings

This morning I made the final adjustments to my space at Grennan Mill Craft School and decided enough was enough, 7 vessels, 2 sculptures and 1 framed piece with a little free machine embroidery.  It’s always nerve wracking but exciting participating in any show and since this is actually my first solo exhibition the stress and worries about the felt I am showing and how the work is displayed are amplified about a thousand fold! Alan was brilliant setting up smart little spot lights on industrial looking tracks for me and Eileen’s plinths look great now that I have given them another couple of coats of paint.  The little holes in the wall are all filled in and painted again as is the radiator and this morning I finished cutting up hundreds of business cards which I printed last night, of course if my house and studio were tidy and organised it would be possible to locate my beautiful professional cards which are just lurking somewhere in all their pristine glory, that’s another story!!!  Fellow exhibitior Brendan Brennan and I helped Grennan Mill director extrodinare Alex Meldrum put up directional signs in Thomastown and now all our fingers are crossed for warm weather tomorrow afternoon to get everybody in a good mood for the official opening at 5.30!  I’ll try and take some pictures then but hopefully we’ll be run off our feet and they might have to wait until another day.

  1. Well, it’s obvious that you’re a creative genius!!! I believe that Albert Einstein said, “Creative people are seldom tidy, and tidy ones seldom creative…” Now, would you rather be creative or tidy? Exactly…So let those old business cards stay in their oh-so-secure spot;-)

    Wishing you much success and joy today. Wish I were able to see the exhibit in person, but will be looking forward to pictures when you have a little breathing room.

    Oh, and congratulations on your latest Wikio ratings, too.

    Hugs,
    Dawn

  2. I will add to Dawn’s comment…..,You are a TIRED creative genius! The fun of it though, is being creative with all the ideas in you head coming out thru your hands. That is the fun part. Along with everyone else, I am looking forward to the pictures. Cannot wait!
