Dartmouth's Craig Gallery was filled to capacity as artists, friends, relatives and others gathered for the recent opening of our regional juried show, Transitions.


Show curator Heather Loney reports on her experience:

Being in charge of this venture, there were a couple things I dreaded. The first was having to tell someone that their work didn’t make it into the show. Our juror, Elizabeth Whalley, eliminated that concern by deeming every piece worthy of being shown. 

So then panic set in: How would I fit all the pieces into our smallest gallery? Cathy Drummond and Linda Mackie Finlay came to my rescue. Through trial and error we shifted, switched and finally hung all the art quilts. The gallery's lighting is excellent, revealing all the fine detail in our stitching and embellishments. The show looks great!

Wow! and Impressive! are two frequent comments in the guest book, along with my favorite comment: Lots of stitching – many cups of tea.

This is our third regional juried show. Every time, we adjust, fine tune and learn from our process and each time, we outdo ourselves with awesome work from very talented SAQA Atlantic members!

Transitions will hang at the Craig Gallery until April 29, 2018.
