Four Sisters Tapestry officially hung

The Artist in Residence tapestry, Four Sisters, is now officially hung at the library.  

If you visit Plainsboro Public library any time soon -- it will be in place for a long while, I hope -- go up one floor to the reference desk, and look at that wall.  



It's red and goes amazingly well with the work, to our surprise, to tell you the truth. I think it's because the colors in the tapestry are largely natural, and the fiber is, too, so it cooperates nicely.



Also cooperating, reference professionals Christina and Ann,  halting their  work for a bit, obligingly letting me make a picture of my  work in its human context.  This is so nice of them, both lovely looking but modest, and not wild about getting their picture out there, but agreeing in the cause of art.

So the First Artist in Residence project is now officially complete. Good, because I'm already deep into the next thing.  But I did stop for a moment to look back over a very nice season's work and all the people who came, watched, made helpful observations, took part in all kinds of ways. Very fitting that it's in the library, because that's what they do.

Congratulations to you, and to the library as well, for recognizing the importance of art - particularly that of local artists.
