Catherine Whall Smith . . . shares her trip to the Mystic Museum of Art today

So, if you remember, during July 2019 I shared my post  “Catherine Whall Smith . . enjoys-driving-the-back-roads-of-connecticut.  At that time the plastic covered hay bales were dressed up with bunny ears and sunglasses. Today I drove that same road and guess what – Mr. Bunny is now Mr. Snowman .

So perfect since this Winter we have been pretty much “snow-less” in Connecticut.  The purpose for my trip today was to hang my pieces in the MMoA “Six by Six” invitational Show and Sale of Art.  On view form February 2nd – April 4th, in the Schuster Gallery (MM0A). All of the art is for sale, you will need to contact the artist to purchase a piece in the show. Artists contact information is available at the museum.

Here are some images from the installation of that show.

The “Transfusion” pieces hung on my 6 foot section of the Schuster Gallery.

The top piece is “Transfusion #3” (41H x 71W) which has been hand-quilted. Each one of the “PARTS” (below “Transfusion #3) have been mounted on 12 x 12 x 1.5 inch canvas.  The 1.5 depth adds some interest to each “PART” and gives me a chance to extend the viewers eye to the canvas sides with the addition of some wonderful fabrics.

 Hope you will be able to get down to visit the “6X6” show as well as the Annual Members/ Elected Artists Exhibition which is on view from January 30th – March 29th, 2020.
