Artist Interpretation Project Complete!

My interpretation of the Proctor Tavern Sign is now at the Peabody Historic Society Museum and will be on display at the exhibit "Historic Interpretation: Contemporary Artists Interpret the Historic Collection" Part II

Opening weekend, August 15, 12 - 7 pm & August 16, 12 - 3 pm
Also on view 1st and 3rd Sundays: September 6 & 20,
October 4 & 18, 12 - 3 pm.
An elephant's trunk pointed up symbolizes good luck - hopefully there will be oodles of people visiting the show.

An explanation of needle-felting and a sampling of the fibers used will also be displayed for those not familiar with the process. Dyed and natural wool fibers are blended to create the desired color palette.

This was both fun and challenging and I'm glad that I"m part of the show. Due to the overwhelming number of artists, the show has been scheduled as two distinct presentations. The first presentation continues now through Aug 2nd, an then the second presentation (where my sculpture will be on display) will start Aug 15 - Oct 18 - the Salem News had a great write-up of the current exhibit.
