Yesterday was installation day. The blue baize boards had arrived and been put into position. I put the velcro on the back of my prints and decided which order they should go in, to the soundtrack of the piano being tuned ready for the festival launch.
I didn’t have the right nail or pin to hang the plate so said I’d pop in today to hang that. We checked the video worked and I handed over my booklets and postcards. Job (almost) done!
I went back today with a gold coloured dressmakers pin which was in the sewing box I inherited after my mother died. She would’ve loved that it’d had this new use.
So tomorrow is the show opening! It’s the festival launch with Hipperholme Community Choir and Calderdale College University Centre Acting Performance Foundation Degree Students performing solo and duo spoken word poetry and performances in relation to the art works on show at the Smith Art Gallery, bringing the art works to life. I wonder if they will respond to mine too…
