Well the blog is telling us it is 15 hours to go…how are we getting on?! Well this is what has been going on since yesterday
This morning Casting the Net artists and poet – Natasha Smith, Catriona Taylor and Stuart Delves were all hard at work setting up their work in No. 1 and Border Cloth exhibition spaces. Natasha has work in No. 1 and Catriona and Stuart have created a blacked out, atmospheric space for their installation in Border Cloth. It has been a very busy day, trying to get things finished off, print jobs sorted and all the details just right.
The weather has been bitter but has not deterred everyone in their work. Neville Rae and Callum Sinclair have worked hard at work in amongst the newly made plinths and just delivered art work to complete the final joinery work so that Jill Watson’s bronze can be fixed in the bay window space.
Helen Douglas has been following everyone around with paint brush in hand, while with the other arranging and curating the works in the spaces.
Keith Alexander has been helping fine tune projected works, curate the exhibitions and at the same time complete the exhibition literature to a racing print deadline – all done now!
Finally, you can see how the exhibition is coming together in No. 1 with work from Casting the Net artist, Mary Morrison sitting calmly next to beautiful hand knitted fishermen’s Gansey’s.
While at No. 48 West Port the work of Casting the Net artists, Lawson Wood and Alice Francis have been installed and are really looking vibrant and intriguing. SO…
