Watt & Shand Wrap-up

This is the last weekend my "Transformation: The Watt & Shand Series" will be on display in the Gallery at the Lancaster Arts Hotel. It's been a wonderful ride-- I've met lots of interesting people at the receptions and had some great conversations, I've heard from visitors to the hotel and gallery who were kind enough to email me and tell me their reactions, and I've had some great local press coverage, including this article in the Lancaster Sunday News. It's been very gratifying and I'm deeply appreciative of all the support.

As I move on to other projects, I wanted to wrap it up visually by sharing a sampling of the photos I took that, for one reason or another, didn't make it into the artwork but still deserve to be seen. Below is the gigantic crane that dominated the skyline for many months:

Another shot of those fabulous orange banners that informed my color choices:

A nice juxtaposition of the old and the new:

Old window frames and new window frames:

I'm on a short hiatus from intensive studio work while I enjoy the fabulous spring weather and indulge in some gardening, but stay tuned for work-in-progress coverage of a new series coming soon.

Congrats, again, for your vision and your resulting show.

I've always enjoyed your running commentary on the construction of the W&S series, but it's even better having seen the art quilts *and* the Convention Center live and in person. Can't wait to see what you do next!
