Along with my art dolls and sculptures I am lucky enough to be part of another unique creation… The Hillsborough Gallery of Arts. This Monday we did our annual holiday show installation. We install a new feature show in this artist-owned gallery each month. The entire space is re-hung during four of those installations, and November is the biggest of all.
The new artwork is accompanied by ornaments, hand crafted scarves, original textile items, and additional jewelry offerings. What appears like a space in chaos in the morning is all ready for those looking for those one-of-a kind items by afternoon. It is an interesting choreography of 22 artists and their work, but it all comes together beautifully.
If you would like to read more about the HGA annual holiday show, “The Art of Giving”, take a look at the gallery’s blog. This year we will be making a fun addition to the show’s opening reception on Friday, November 29th. Three artists (myself included) will be offering an ornament mini-workshop during the first hour (6-7pm) of the evening. I’ll share more on that in a future post, but mark your calendar. The idea is a non-typical “Black Friday” activity with art, conversation, refreshments, and a bit of creativity.
