Watt and Shand # 8 Acceptance for "Inside Outside"

I'm very happy to announce that Watt & Shand #8 has been accepted to "Inside Outside", an all-media exhibit May 13 - June 19, 2011, at the Goggleworks Center for the Arts in Reading, PA.  The juror is Bruce Samuelson.  This work is part of my 10 piece series on the transformation of the former Watt & Shand department store into a hotel and convention center, wherein the facade was preserved and incorporated into the new construction.  You can see the entire series on my website; I also blogged about extensively and you can track back the works in progress by clicking on "Watt & Shand" under Labels in the right sidebar.  The images for this piece are from photos I took in Feb. of 2009, when the work was nearing completion, and workers were installing the renovated balustrades.

The theme for this exhibit is "A Broad Interpretation of Space and Place on the Edge and in Between".  That fits neatly with the images and format I used  in this piece,  plus it's always a thrill to get a fiber piece into an all-media show.  I think it will be a very interesting exhibit and I look forward to seeing the variety of work at the opening reception.

Fantastic! Congratulations on the continued success of the W&S series. It is a good thing when textile art is included in an all media exhibit - helps to break down some of those barriers!
