The Perfect Ending

Two years ago, as part of a local collective project, I created a fibre piece titled "Greenwood: Layers in Time".

Greenwood: Layers in Time, 40" x 30"

It was my tribute to Hudson's historic home, Greenwood, which dates back to 1732. Fourteen artists were each assigned an aspect of Hudson in celebration of its 150th anniversary. The project culminated in several showings of the collected works, and the images of the art were printed on banners that are still on display around the town.

The happy ending to this story is that my piece has been acquired by Greenwood. It's now on display in a room set aside for the historic artifacts that tell the narrative of the house. The lighting enhances the piece, and shows the textural detail to full effect, though in the photo below the colours appear a bit washed out.

I am thrilled at this outcome, and pleased that the image of the piece will now be included in Greenwood's promotional material. You can learn more about Greenwood by going to their website. And if you're in the area this summer, do consider a visit. Afternoon tea on the screened porch, overlooking the lake and extensive gardens, is a very civilized experience.

I'd say this is a win-win for me and for Greenwood.
