Installing Searchlight 2009

"No white walls, no white pedestals. Not that there's anything wrong with that."

So goes my design mantra in planning the Searchlight Artists exhibition we're currently installing at the American Craft Show in Baltimore.

After a long day preparing for the artists to arrive tomorrow, and then an awesome dinner at the Afghan restaurant The Helmand, I'm plum exhausted. But here are some pics from the day. Stay tuned for more tomorrow and Friday!

The lovely and talented Ann Pifer of The Grand Hand Gallery stopped by this evening to generously help install wall text.

Dorothy Draper-inspired stripes define the Dressing Room, which will showcase jewelry.

The handsome and capable duo Marty and Tony making sure everything runs smoothly.

Bobby, Skip, and Al painting shelves, installing lights, and making sure I'm happy!

Me figuring out shelf heights with Skip.

Monica Hampton, Director of Education at the American Craft Council, and artist advisor Nicole Carroll help figure out wall text placement.

We have lots more to do... can't wait to see the show really take shape tomorrow! Good night...
