SAQA Transformations: Hanging the Show

Last Friday after weeks of scattered meetings when we barely had a handful of attendees, four Sisters and a few "Husbands of Sisters" hung the SAQA show, Transformations, at the Guilford Art Center. What an experience! The quilts were wrapped in rolls and packed expertly in two large metal "coffins". Each roll was a treasure of textiles which were individually stunning and collectively arresting. The pieces had to be unwrapped, inspected, loged into the show and then hung. It was our first experience in hanging a show of such magnitude and it was a learning experience for all involved.

Tonight will be the opening reception and we anticipate that it will be very well attended. More photos to come!

  1. Oh! How wonderful, I'd love to be able to get back and see the show.

    I'm also very happy to see you using gloves...sometimes when I've helped hanging shows (even bigger ones) gloves were not used and it sort of bothered me...I guess the curator coming out in me.

    I hope visitation is fantastic! Congratulations on having it done and thank you for all your hard work.
