I installed my fiber sculpture, The Ocean’s Whisper to Me at the GoggleWorksin Reading, Pa. I want to thank Lauralynn for her help and for allowing me to pick the very best spot in the gallery to hang my large piece. I was concerned that it would only look good from the front since that’s how I had worked on it in my studio so I chose a spot in front of a wall.
I worked out a new hanging system with curtain rods and felted magnets with fishing line sewn to them. After I arranged and rearranged it in my studio I numbered and color coded the magnets and their placement on the rods. I’m so glad I did all this because I wasn’t allowed to get up on a ladder in the gallery. I worked with a very patient gallery helper on the ladder. Handing each numbered magnet to him, he placed it to the corresponding number on the rod. It went up easily and quickly.
Lauralynn loved it and said let’s see how it looks without the wall behind it. The walls in the gallery are moveable and viola. We liked it from every angle. This was an unexpected bonus so I took some pictures right before my camera battery went dead.
The opening is on Friday, May 4, 5:30 – 7:30. I can’t wait to see the rest of the show. The show runs through June 3rd.
