Rabbitat film premiere at Woods Hole Library

Rabbitat film by UnderCurrent Productions

This is a week of waiting for delivery trucks to pull up into my driveway. Eleven boxes full of artwork from Pocketful of Posies are in transit from Iowa and a stack of UV Plexiglas is loaded in a truck barreling down some US highway between Illinois and Massachusetts. It seems that no matter how well one plans ahead, everything happens at once, at the last-minute.

I’m confident that by Sunday, July 10th, the artwork will have arrived, so I can display it at the Woods Hole Public Library reception as advertised.  (Update: they’ve just arrived) The UV Plexiglas isn’t so important because I can always put a temporary piece of regular glass in Rabbitat’s frame. I ordered UV Plexi for every piece that will be in the show at the Brattleboro Museum and was hoping to replace all the glass before driving the artwork up to Vermont next Monday. Confused yet? Without boring you with any more logistical details, let’s just say that this is a very busy week with 2 events occurring back-to-back, with no time for breathing (or stitching) in between. I did manage to finish a wedding banner for my son’s friend, which I’ll show in a future post. Also, my friend Terry and I made cookies ahead and they’re in the freezer. The good news is that the 7.25 minute Rabbitat film is finished and ready for its premiere at the Woods Hole Public Library Reception.

And yes, I’ll eventually put the Rabbitat film on this blog and/or my website when I have time to figure out how. (Update: See the film and read related posts on this new page

Here’s the schedule:

Sunday, July 10th 5:00 – 7:00 pm. Woods Hole Public Library, Woods Hole, Massachusetts,  Reception to celebrate the Boston Globe Horn Book Award and Golden Kite Award for Pocketful of Posies. Original illustrations from the book will be displayed and I’ll give a brief talk. A short film about the making of my newest piece, Rabbitat will be shown.

July 15, 2011 – February 5, 2012 – Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Brattleboro, Vermont,  Salley Mavor – Sewn Stories. (exhibit includes 8 original illustrations from Pocketful of Posies , 11 other fabric relief pictures and the Rabbitat film)  

And later this fall:

October 15, 2011 – 3:00 pm, Brattleboro Literary Festival, Brattleboro, Vermont. I’ll give a slide talk about my work at the Brattleboro Museum.

  1. WOW! You are a busy bee! I sure wish that I could be in Falmouth and Woods Hole on Sunday, for several reasons. Maybe October will be doable…I will try to plan on a trip to New England around that time. Have a glorious reception and enjoy the well-deserved accolades. Cheers and blessings, until I finally get to meet you in person…sometime!! PS..I love the “Rabbitat” graphics for the header.

  2. Sounds like a hectic schedule but fun to have others see your wonderful work. Maybe in the fall I would head down to woods hole, but summer traffic is bad enough here, I can imagine how it is on the cape areas.


  3. Oh it will be hard to be patient to wait for the Rabbitat film – I just love the art for the title for it – so perfect! But obviously you have a lot going on so I’ll do my best to be patient LOL!

  4. Oh, how I wish I lived closer to where you’ll be exhibiting. If only I knew how to get local venues to sponsor you. Sigh. Anywho, our local electricity provider sent us a letter a while back alerting us about tree trimming crews in the neighborhood. It was signed, “Vegetation Management Team.” It tickled me no end. Since then my son and I have taken to referring to rabbits as the vegetation management crew. They do seem to take on that task in the garden with the same zeal as the tree trimmers. I’ve no clue what “Rabbitat” is, but am certainly curious if there is management of vegetation involved.
