The paint is drying, the selfies are ready for framing and the postcards are in, so let's get this show on the road! The Charleston County Main Library, at 68 Calhoun Street, has a lovely gallery thanks to the Saul Alexander Foundation. My show, Women's Work, runs from May 1-31 with an opening reception during the Charleston ArtWalk on Friday, May 5th, 4-6pm. The Gallery Committee selects artists and craftsmen for inclusion in the exhibition schedule on the basis of the quality of their work and suitability for the space. Applications are due in September and can be found at www.ccpl.org/gallery or by calling 843.805.6840.
The freedom to develop a concept for the space has been inspiring and evolving. I chose this topic last summer on a whim after buying an antique iron and thinking about traditional female roles and the "fairer sex." Since then, women and what's important to them has been front and center, so I'm trying to go with the flow and just keep up.
I've made 2 parts of the show group oriented and the response has been touching, funny and creative. Of course. So now I wish I had a bigger space!
