Displaced posters are here!

Since first sharing images of my newest piece, Displaced a few weeks ago, I have been overwhelmed by the response from all over the world. The photos and video spread quickly throughout the internet and have been viewed by thousands on this blog, FacebookInstagram and Pinterest. I cannot tell you how touched I am by the outpouring of appreciation in so many different languages! Many people from varied backgrounds said it resonated with them personally and reminded them of their own family’s struggles generations ago. Nancy Taylor expressed her reaction so well, “I often feel despair listening to the radio stories about the experience of refugees around the world. Having the ability to express this in such a beautiful and meaningful way must be profound on a personal level. And it helps the rest of us understand, be more aware and have compassion too.”


Detail of Displaced, 2016

I was asked if this piece could be made into a poster, so I’m pleased to say yes, 18″ x 24″ posters (beautifully designed by my sister Anne) are now in my Etsy Shop. The plan is to exhibit Displaced for the next few years, instead of selling it, so that as many people as possible have the opportunity to see the original fabric relief piece. Even though a printed reproduction cannot duplicate the experience of seeing the real thing, the poster captures the detail and emotional impact of the piece. And poster sales will help defray the cost of shipping the artwork to different parts of the country.

Displaced is being shown March 1 ~ April 1, 2017, Hanging by a Thread – Neeedle Art of Salley Mavor  at Gallery 65 on William, New Bedford, MA. The exhibit will show 5 large pieces: Face Time, Whiskers, Cover Up, Displaced and Birds of Beebe Woods. Gallery Open Hours: Tues. – Sat. 11:00 – 5:00 pm.

June 30 – August 26, 2017 ~ Pathfinders: New Territories

  1. This is such a profound piece, Salley. And so naturally emerging from your recent beards and head wear pieces. I can’t wait to see in person somewhere, in the meantime a poster will be excellent. ❤
