Hanging the solo show

I just finished helping with the hanging of my 10 pieces at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center. Hanging at a museum apparently involves more math and perfection than I can muster.

Here I am with the exhibit coordinator Margaret trying to understand the complicated steps as explained by the curator, Mara. We tried hard but still screwed it up.

Luckily my wunderbar husband, Geoff was there to make it work.
Friends stopped by with helpful suggestions and encouragement. Notice the sticky roller in my hand.  Since I failed at the actual hanging, I assigned myself the important job of making sure my cat’s long white fur wasn’t also part of the exhibit.

It actually does look amazing all hung and I’m very excited for the Friday opening!
