MoCC Portland Residency | Installation
Installation of Recollect 2 was a breeze thanks to Kat Perez the exhibition coordinator. I was happy to have the work installed near my primary inspirations for this project – Laurie Herrick’s Purple Polychrome and Tree of Life. I am feeling really good about this work and am glad to have another day with it before heading home. Its always hard to tell what to make of something you’ve just finished.
If you havent already done so, I would encourage you to check out the website for the exhibition Laurie Herrick: Weaving Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. From the website you can download weaving drafts, look at Herrick’s notes and sketches and participate in the exhibition by uploading an image of your own creation inspired by Herrick’s work on the museum’s Flickr page. Eventually a recording of my artist talk will also be available on the museum’s program page.
THANK YOU to everyone at MoCC for their generosity and assistance in making my time as artist in residence a memorable and inspiring one – Namita Gupta Wiggers, Kat Perez and Lauren Raburn especially!
Finally thank you Kristofer Kelly, my partner through it all for your patience, encouragement and love. (I’ll be home in forty-eight hours!)
