my collage, as it turns out, was selected for the making history exhibit at make.shift in conjunction with whatcom county museum. very exciting to be part of a collective expression of an idea. more so when the show is juried. it feels like getting a good grade or being part of a club or something.
i get such a thrill in participating in a hanging and seeing the public interact with my work. i don't know how to explain it. a small part of me wishes i could stand next to my art and listen to what folks experience visually.
make.shift is a venue that i am very fond of. gritty, edgy, super arty and inspires. a making place for sure.
( i snapped the above image because i really really love the frame. I will have to find someone to replicate this for me.)
thank you make.shift for the pleasure of making history with you.
this month, and through the end of October -- i have 35 pieces of art hanging in the area. 4 venues. wow - i'd say that's a rather beautiful thing.
