So last night, I was at the CBC with colleagues Ann, Trish and Pat setting up the office suite and corridor with our artworks.
Four hours went in like a flash and I was in my element. I really enjoyed considering the relationships between the works and how best to place them. Intervention was the theme, with mixing up respective artists' works rather than having them on separate walls. I think this made for a far better exhibition and I was so pleased to have willing colleagues.
The room is great though with its challenges - namely a curved wall though one of Trish's paintings looks great on its own there. We also made use of the space under the windows which makes for a quirky and inventive display. We ended up colour coding to some extent; a green wall, a blue wall and a red wall. On the red wall, Pat's colours are strong and contemporary. They make a bold impression and Trish's painting helps bring a visual conclusion to the display before the doorway.
All in all we have mixed minimalist (Carol) with classical - Ann's Florentine Ladies; table tops with landscape (Trish) and the quizzical - Pat's bird with attitude!
I am really excited for this year's show though unfortunately I will not be present over the first weekend. So - I am missing an event by Greentrax who are based at the CBC in addition to a fundraiser event for Boatie Blest. I hope the sun shines and visitors flock.
