Noah's Ark Series
I've been asked to exhibit 50 pieces at the Thrasher Horne Center for the Artsat St. John's River State College in Orange Park FL. The show will run April 28 to June 16, 2012.
My concept for the show is a Noah's Ark theme with 25 pairs of brightly colored animal collages. I want to make them actual pairs, with elements and/or colors that cross over between the two, to reinforce the theme. I'd also like to create an oversized ark piece for the anchor piece of the exhibit. I'm excited about this show but my husband, who has a much better grip on math than I do, informed me the other day that at this rate I need to be producing three collages a week to meet my deadline of 50 pieces by next April. Um, yikes!
If you are working on a big show and need to order such a high volume of materials from Blick, know that you can call their customer service and tell them that you are purchasing in volume. I was able to negotiate an excellent per panel price from them, much lower than I have ever seen in the sale catalogue.
Stay tuned for more sets of twos but this is my first, Toucans. I thought you might like the word play there, I know I do!
I'm headed out on a cruise to Mexico this morning and I have one of these in my suitcase, I kid you not! I can't do any blogging or emailing this week, it's going to be technology free, but I'll be taking photos of my work in progress in my cabin and will share with you when I return.
