Double Take

Our group, Sisters in Cloth, collaborated with photographer Rose Delucco Alpert over three years ago to create Double Take:  Photo & Fiber.  Our first installation was at Haskins Labs at Yale University in New Haven CT.  We were thrilled!

Our art quilts, inspired by Rose's flower photographs, were all framed the same size as her images.  Then we each created an 8" detail to accompany the grouping.  It was fabulous…and it had the flexibility to adapt to other venues.

Which brings me to the real point of this posting:  The whole (with some individual pieces added) is now installed at the Bruce S. Kershner Gallery in Fairfield CT. (Until Feb 23rd)  It really makes my heart sing to see it there.  I knew Bruce from years ago when he was head librarian at the Fairfield Public Library on the Old Post Road and I was an over-worked real estate broker and single mom of three children making our home  there in town.

The artists who serve on the curatorial committee for the Gallery were terrific to work with.  AND they hung the show, AND hosted a lovely reception, AND printed gorgeous postcards. Such support!

This installation has so much meaning for me…it's a bit sad to see this exhibit on it's final journey before being broken up and sent home to all of our participants…but really happy too.  Darn, these conflicted feelings are hard to describe.
