|Unsung Muses at the Scottish Storytelling Centre - the main wall|
My exhibition is up and on show at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh. R took the day off work to come and help me hang it, which was brilliant. As well as the work and all the hanging paraphernalia, we also packed a spade in the car as the snow forecast wasn’t very encouraging. In the event, we had no problems, although as I write this now I have a lovely view of a white wonderland outside as it started snow just after we got home. So I’m glad we were hanging the show yesterday.
|Hanging the first piece|
It was fairly straight forward, once I had played around with the layout of the pieces, as of course, the work feels different in a new location to what it did in the studio. It has so much more space to breathe. R’s height is a huge advantage in putting the work up, although it will make it fun for me to take down...It is fantastic to be able to display it in such a lovely location and the amazing high ceiling really helps show it off to best advantage.
|Putting up the last|
I also have a leaflet to accompany the exhibition and I’m pleased with how it looks too, containing the text I posted about the other week.

So if you are in Edinburgh before 21 February, please drop in to the Scottish StorytellingCentre and have a look. It is open every day from 10-6, apart from Sunday.
