Even the weather got into the spirit of things this weekend! drop by drop opened on Saturday and it was pouring rain on the Sunshine Coast which didn’t live up to its name at all. Maybe we should be pleased the weather got into the spirit of things and “helped” celebrate a show inspired by water.
We were able to have the doors and windows open all day even in the rain! it was exciting to see our installation set up in the center of the yurt. Those 7 meter banners that seemed soooo very long in my studio, were just right in the gallery.
The building isn’t tipping over, it’s just the image, sorry about that!
Here’s a few images from around the gallery….
Elizabeth’s beautiful river inspired Raku looked perfectly at home with my quilt “where the river meets the sea” .
here’s a close up of the quilting …I really enjoyed the quilting on this one, well all of them actually but this one especially.
This piece called “rain” was tricky to shoot, it’s made up of 2 layers of sheer with a batik scroll design all over. The sheer lets the light flow right through which is quite lovely in person but not so much when taking images. The piece hung quite low over the pedestal covered with Elizabeth’s porcelain rain drop reliquaries.
I must have been leaning to one side when taking these images! here’s another one that isn’t really crooked. And one last image …
We had a wonderful time at the opening, with many thanks to Reg and Yvonne at FibreWorks for making it such a great experience. If you are going to be on the Sunshine Coast before the 6th of August do stop in and see the show.
Bye for now, Catherine
