Hanging the Zoom exhibition

Today Jane and I went along to the Slough Museum to hang the work as EquilARTeral's part in Ideas Bank 2010 . Eleanor Pulfer, the Curator, chatted with us about few things like placement, got us a cup of tea, and then let us get to work. We are really grateful for the opportunity she has given us.

The work looks really good together. It is quite something to see your work in a gallery setting. When it is just at home when you are working on it, or even when you pull it out to show friends, you don't seem to be able to see it as a whole. Hanging in the gallery gives it quite a special "authentic" feel!

Here is a glimpse of the Zoom pieces in place.
Jane Glennie's work Significant is on the left, then my work Communication, then Merete Hawkins work Sunflowers.

If you would like to view our work and that of several other local artists, the exhibit opens on 3 Feb. 2010. The Museum is open from 11am - 4pm Wed - Sat. Click here for a map to find out how to get there. You can also find out info about Ideas Bank 2009.

We had taken some other work because we thought we might be given space in the window, but there were already plans for that. However, the Endless Possibilities triptych was just right against a small pillar-like wall in the near the middle of the room. The white wall is great for revealing just enough of the mystery of what might be on the other side. We were able position it to stand slightly away from the wall. As it is very light, this will be a wonderful place for it to waft slightly in the breeze of someone going past. The position is almost made for it!

Jane took more photos, so when she sends them on, I will show Endless Possibilities in place.
