Square Dance is now open

My solo exhibition Square Dance has been installed at the Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery and is now open to the public under current Covid-19 rules.

You have to look up to see most of March Fourteenth, Twenty Fifteen. It wasn’t installed as I had envisioned but it does make lovely shadows.

As you come in the front door there is a small sign that would never have appeared in a gallery a few years ago.

The images below are just to give you a feel for the gallery space. They do not show every work in the exhibition. (Some of the pictures include David as he was doing the documentary photography of each piece.)

The guestbook for Square Dance is a ‘virtual’ one!

Saskatchewan Craft Council staff are working on images of the show, and gradually posting them on the SCC website. You might want to check here in a few days to see all the pieces from Square Dance.

Now Online: Guest-Curated Tables

We love to set tables for guests. Now, we’re inviting them to set their own. Custom collections by Levit, Levée, Morla, Sandhaus, and Weefur weave unique threads of design history, style, and meaning.

Before Covid-19 restrictions, you could visit the Letterform Archive and, if you specified a particular area of interest, they would set out a table of items from your chosen subject. With the archive now online, you can put together your own ‘table’. Letterform Archive has posted some interesting tables put together by invited guests. You can have a look here.

    That’s fabulous! The show looks really great. What a lot of work. Can I ask how you would have changed the installation of March Fourteen, Twenty Fifteen? I agree the shadows are lovely. In some of the shots it looks too high up to me. But still, it’s a very nice show.

      Thank-you. It took over two years to make all the work in the show.

      I would have hung it in longer sections and more side to side working from the start near the back of the gallery (where it is started) to the very front. Most of the work is quite high with the lowest sections high enough to be just above the head of a very tall person. My layout for the piece would not have made as nice shadows and would have created more difficulties in lighting the show. The shadows on the wall help encourage viewers to look up!

    Wow! I know how much time went in to this so “wow” is the most fitting response.
    Yes, I will come back and have a look at the Council’s site to see more.
    Well done, you!
