Framing for a Show

My friend Peter convinced me to submit six collages for an Art Group show at the North Yarmouth Academy in Maine. It will be held in April in their Curtis Gallery. I had a framing marathon the day before yesterday. Peter picked up 12 frames for me and then went with me to the hardware store where I had 12 pieces of glass cut to fit them. I was up until midnight to finish.

I'm so pleased with the results. 12 pieces are now out of the flat files and on the wall!

I moved Blanche Big in from the stone porch a few days ago in case the ceiling there decided to leak with all the rain we had. Now she has some company!

Wow. Map dots held with pins. How cool. And the "bump up" pieces are thought-provoking also. What a great technique to attain three-dimensionality! Thanks, Paula!
