I had a lovely afternoon last Monday up in Truro at the Visual Voice Gallery with the proprietress. We went through my work, I described my process, and she decided which pieces she wanted to keep for various shows. I also took my notecards on the off chance she might want some of those. She did!
So now if anyone is looking for my work through a gallery in Nova Scotia, they can contact the gallery owner at: firstname.lastname@example.org
The first show I’m a part of starts today at Visual Voice in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada. It’s a group show on the theme of “Summer”.
In other news…
The Visual Voice Gallery owner mentioned two other exhibits I could take part in this year, both group shows. One is the end of August into September. The August/September one is called “Offbeat”. I plan on presenting her with some unusual pieces I’ve hooked over the years to see if anyone is interested in them
She also mentioned the Christmas sale, in which she tries to keep items under $100 CAD. I have several items I could display in that sale as well. Then there are my Christmas notecards. So if you’re interested in acquiring or seeing my work in person, visit Visual Voice!
I am organizing hooked pieces for a photography session later this month. I finally went through the professional photos I’ve had taken in the past and noted them on my main inventory list. I need to be better at figuring out what needs to be photographed professionally and what’s already been done. Next up is to take the pieces that need photos off the walls for the photographer.
I am also preparing for an exhibit with The Bonnie Hookers July 14-16th at Scott Manor House in Bedford, Nova Scotia. I will take a variety of work that is a variety of sizes. I will be there most of those days to help demonstrate rug hooking, answer questions and facilitate sales. If you are a blog reader and show up at the sale, make yourself known to me and I’ll try to show you around the exhibit.
I’m working on finishing some of the Parker’s Cove fishing shacks. I’ve also started the biggest Parker’s Cove piece to date. It is over 12” x 36” and will take awhile to hook. I’ll be working on it during my upcoming self-designed artist retreat.
That’s it so far everyone! If you have been, thanks for reading. Have a great week everyone!
