I arrived at the PIQF conference hotel yesterday. Once I was settled in my room and had unpacked those things not necessary for my special exhibition I made my way over to the Santa Clara Convention Center.
The timing was perfect, my special booth had just been set up and I was able to proceed. I don’t often hang my own show, leave alone do it by myself. I welcomed the alone time and I began with unrolling the wall quilts.
Soon the first quilt was hung. I double checked the height and confirmed that presenting the quilts at eye level for most visitors would be best. In less than two hours the show was mounted. I omitted one diptych because there simply was no more room!
The statement and labels were my last step before I deemed the exhibition complete. You are getting a preview here. PIQF (Pacific International Quilt Festival 2013) opens tomorrow. If you live close, make sure to visit. If you see me there, make sure to say “hello”!
