Sunday afternoon was a very wonderful art event that I was part of called Parlor Antics. Artist Julie Kirkpatrick and her husband invite 5 artists to install work into their amazing historical Crown Heights town home.
They ask that the artists respond to the fact that the work is being hung in a home and respond to it as a place or its architecture.
I chose to hang a new work of mine in the front window of the parlor...love the back light with the work.
and install "waking with you" on a couch in the room.
I was so delighted to see my work in this environment and feel like it looks SO much better in a place that has history and is surrounded by the energy of life instead of a sterile white box... and I so wish I had the opportunity to see my work this way more often.
The event was wonderful, the people were so kind, sweet, and fun.
and so nice to have my art in a real home... I usually do not get to see it once it makes it there.
Hope you think it looks good too.
