Orange You Glad on Exhibit

In addition to Women’s Work 1, Orange You Glad was also in an art exhibit.

Yes, an art exhibit not a quilt exhibit.

My work had a “[name of company]’s Got Talent”. It was mostly performances, but there was also an art show on the side and I entered Orange You Glad.

They didn’t know how to display quilts, so I had to give them a lesson and bring a curtain rod, but the art handlers flung the quilts over plinths and that’s how they were displayed. It worked out ok.

I was kind of shocked when I saw that they had taped – yes Scotch taped! – the label to my quilt!!!

Clearly they were professional curators and it was only a few hours, so I didn’t worry about it too much, but it was still kind of shocking.

I had never seen a quilt on a plinth (pillar?) before, so that was an interesting experience. I thought it looked ok, though the border I sewed was completely lost.

I was glad to have the opportunity to have another quilt on display with paintings, wood carvings and other works.

  1. That’s so great to see on exhibit! I love that your company had an employee art exhibit. Yes, that is a super funny way to display a quilt, but you can see quite a lot of the design. A whole lot of professional art curators just don’t know how to display textiles. It’s not that hard, but it is different than the “usual”.
