Yesterday we rented a van and took five of my Coronas to the Auburn Community & Event Center in Auburn WA. Allison Hyde, the Arts City of Auburn Parks, Arts & Recreation Arts Coordinator, helped us unload the pieces and lay them out in the hallway, then let us go so she could spend the next couple hours carefully hanging them in the hallways/gallery space in their building.
As we were placing pieces in the hall we were all taken aback by how vividly the threads glowed in the brightly lit space. There are a couple of skylights high above that indirectly light the space and when walking down the hallway, the light just makes the works glow. It was so incredible to see five of my pieces in one place.
Now seeing the photos Allison has shared of the final installation, I am so impressed with how nice they look. I’ve always struggled in my workspace with how to hang the pieces when I work on them and then temporarily hang them to photograph them for my records and photo gallery. Its inspiring and rewarding to see how good they can look when hung with a professional mounting system in a bright, large, and airy public space.
I encourage everyone to go down to the Auburn Community & Events Center at 910 9th Ave SE, Auburn WA. The Coronas will be up until October 9, 2018. And follow their Facebook page to see more info about their programs, and future art installations.
Thank you, Allison, for giving me this opportunity to share my work!
