Hanging at Pat and Tony's

Today I hung at St. Patrick's-St. Anthony's Church at 285 Church St. in Hartford.

This venerable downtown parish, staffed by Franciscan fathers, is a beacon of liberal Catholicism in Hartford.  Part of its mission includes the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry, a community service center.

 Within the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry is the Clare Gallery, named for St. Francis' follower and contemporary, Clare of Assisi.

St. Francis has been my favorite saint since high school, with his love of nature and stress on spiritual as opposed to material values.

I'm thrilled that the Clare Gallery is sponsoring Seeking a Path, a show of my fiber art work.  That show was hung this afternoon.  Hanging a show usually starts with standing all the pieces against the wall and deciding what looks good with what.

It's always fun to create these compositions.  Some choices seem like natural combinations.

In fact, all the combinations for this show seemed natural.  Clare Gallery volunteer Tara Kremidas, who did most of the hanging work, has a wonderful eye, and we put together a pretty good looking show. 

Please join us for an opening reception at the Gallery at 285 Church St., Hartford, on Thursday, November 12 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m., with an artist talk at 7.  There's ample, free, well-lighted parking right across the street.
