The opening is May 20, I believe...definite time and date later. The hanging is this week so part of the weekend will be spent preparing for that...checking hanging wires and printing labels. I hope you can come see the work in person once it is up.
This little piece is called The Doorkeeper. Created from an old red book cover, a scraped and aged checkerboard, part of a picture frame, as well as little detail pieces, the cut-out words on The Doorkeeper read "Witness as the doorkeeper with a proud heart kisses the dark moon."
I love cutting words from old books, shuffling them around on a table, then putting them back together into phrases/poetry/or whatever you want to call it. This process calls up something different in the mind than sitting down to write on the computer or with pen and paper in hand, and is very stress-free and playful. You will write things you never thought you could!
