Hosparus Installation

Yesterday (Monday) two friends and I decided to go to the "Form Not Function" quilt art exhibit at the Carnegie in New Albany, Indiana. Well...we drove down there just to find out that the exhibit is only open Tuesdays through Saturdays 10:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. (The "Form Not Function" exhibit will be available through March 6, 2010.) Well, that is just par for the course for me! We did end up going to the LAFTA installation at the Hosparus Grief Counseling Center in Louisville and out to eat at the Macaroni Grill, so all was not lost!

I took pictures of the installation at the Hosparus Grief Counseling Center. For those of you who don't know, Hosparus is a fully accredited, non-profit organization that provides care, comfort and counseling for people facing life-limiting illnesses in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. For the LAFTA art installation at Hosparus, 53 members agreed to make a 10" X 10" fiber piece that could be mounted to a stretched canvas base. Any type of art medium could be used as long as it could be worked or placed on the canvas. The canvas background had to be covered or painted, but the work could extend slightly over the edges. The following pictures are of the installation. The plaque on the wall says, "This Collaborative Art Project is donated to the Hosparus Grief Counseling Center by the Members of the Louisville Fiber and Textile Artists, October 9, 2009." I'm really proud to have a piece in this project. Mine is the third from the left in the top row on "The Journey" wall.
