Laying the Foundation
Today was the first meetup for the HIVE project. Mary Gregory, Margot Stage, Brenda Cirioni, Catherine Evans and myself met at Artspace in Maynard. We busily set out to work of embroidering aluminum screen with steel wire... each of us adding our individual touch to the process. The collected units will ultimately be sewn together to build the modular components of a growing installation.
Each week groups of interested participants will be meeting at my Joy Street Studio and other venues. The next time together will be in my studio this Friday, April 6, at twelve pm. If you'd like to be a part of this community collaborative, please contact me for future schedules and more information.
In the course of today's meeting we shared book titles, kid advice, politics and the merits of aluminum screen as material. The newness of the group kept the conversation simple... A few shared moments... some relationship building... all we need now is time.
