We got to Athens around 6 pm - too late to really meet the others but in time to get a glimpse of an awesome exhibition. Every where I turned, I was astounded. Dorothy Caldwell was teaching at Nancy Crow's barn nearby and came over to the opening. She told me that it was the best QN she had yet seen. I didn't take my camera into the opening, but Ned had his, and took this photo of my tiny jewel, Cross My Heart.
Q: What was the best thing about seeing the work in person rather than just in the catalog?
A: I think it is standing right up beside the work, and feeling how big it is, how transparent or heavy. These things don't come across in print. In the catalog all the pieces are treated as equally as possible, but the relative scale is all out of wack. When you see how big (or how small) a piece really is, it makes a huge difference. At least to me.
I wish this piece was bigger. Next time, it will be.
Shall post more photos tomorrow when I take my own camera and have a quiet look.
