Last week, Celeste’s 3rd grade class from Mullen Hall School came to see my artwork at Highfield Hall in Falmouth. She and her Mom, Deb, have shared photos of some felt dolls that they saw in Istanbul last summer in an earlier post here. I’ve just received word that Highfield will host the Pocketful of Posies Traveling Exhibit again near the tail end of its three-year tour in Sept./Oct. of 2013. Also, for those who live close by and haven’t yet seen the show, it’s up an extra day, Mon., Nov. 1st from 10 to 4pm. I’ll be going in on Tuesday to pack up the pictures and then driving them up to the Danforth Museum in Framingham later this week. The good news is that they’ve decided to hang the whole show, instead of half, which was the original plan!
The children traveled from one room to the next in small groups, searching for and identifying items on their cards. I answered questions as they looked closely at the artwork and found surprises.
It was great fun and we all had a good time! The children even brought in found objects from home to give to me as a thank you gift. Thanks to Deb for making the event so memorable!
