I am happy to report that a select group of original illustrations from Pocketful of Posies will continue to tour. Currently, 24 framed fabric reliefs are on display at the Lexington Public Library in Kentucky. They’ll be there until August 17, 2014 and I’m thrilled that people from this part of the country will have the opportunity to see the show! There have been 20 exhibits around the country since the book was published in 2010 and the plan was to have it travel for 3 years. Sold pieces are now with their owners, but enough of the group are still together to keep the show alive for a bit longer.
These 2 exhibits have recently been added to the schedule for 2015:
April 2 – April 29, 2015 at the Newton Free Library, Newton, Massachusetts. (20 to 25 pieces shown) Artist talk TBA.
October 17, 2015 – January 31, 2016 at the Upcountry Museum – Furman University, Greenville, SC (20 to 25 pieces). Artist talk TBA.
Since Pocketful of Posies began touring, I’ve heard from many people who want the show to come closer to where they live. They write, “Please come to Seattle or southern California or Texas!” I would love to have the work go far and wide, but it’s not that easy. The key obstacles are sparking enough of an interest and securing funding for shipping costs. At this stage, I don’t have time to send out proposals to new places, but I welcome inquiries from suitable venues. That’s how these latest locations were added. Please contact me for more information about hosting the exhibit.
Your work is amazing, so many details, so much work on each piece, congratulations! I have the book, I wish I could see the exhibit, but… I live in South Brazil.
Greetings, Sandra. Yes, I’m sorry that you won’t be able to see the originals, but I’m so glad that you were able to get the book in Brazil!
