“Posies” exhibit at the Danforth

I delivered my artwork to the next location in the Pocketful of Posies Traveling Exhibit. 45 original fabric relief illustrations from the book will be on display in the children’s gallery at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, Mass. from Nov. 14th to Jan. 23rd. First,  Rob and I went to Highfield with a huge role of bubble wrap and packed the artwork into our car.

That evening, I individually wrapped each frame in bubble wrap.

The next day my husband and I drove our Passat wagon with the 50 bubble wrapped frames filling the car to the ceiling. We headed off Cape and up Rt. 128 to the Danforth Museum in Framingham. The museum staff will hang the show this week and be ready for the opening on Saturday.

The exhibit’s opening reception will be on Sat., Nov. 13th from 6:00-8:00. All are welcome. I’ll be going back on Sunday, Dec. 5th to sign books at 1:30pm. The Danforth Museum will also be hosting their monthly Drop Into Art  Family Tours and Activities on Dec. 5th from 2pm to 4pm. (learn more) I hope that many of you from New England will come see the show!

One picture will not be part of the show. Molly, my sister and I is on display in New York City at the Society of Illustrators until Nov. 24th. My picture is the only 3 dimensional piece in the Original Art 2010 show, which includes a juried selection of original illustrations from 129 children’s books published in 2010.

  1. Exciting!!!! You’re show is on the road now. Hope it all goes very smoothly for you. So wish I could see it somewhere in the West.

    • Cate, I’ve been sending show proposals to locations on the west coast, but haven’t yet heard a positive response from any place. Finding a willing venue with funds for shipping artwork is a key element. Also, categorizing my work is a challenge for many places that specialize in a certain artform. Is it illustration, embroidery, fiber art, mixed media sculpture, folk art or craft? Well, it’s all of those things! I’m still hoping for a west coast showing in the next 3 years!

  2. Salley,
    Congratulations on the NYC Society Of Illustrators! You must be pleased to have been chosen, it must be a good feeling to be recognized with the best.
    I hope to take my 10 year old to the Danforth show….she loves your books.

  3. Hi Sally,

    I unfortunately missed the show at Highfield (cancelled and changed plans) but am looking forward to catching this one at the Danforth Museum. Looks like moving the artwork went well. Good luck with the rest of the exhibition!
