Maudslay Installation Takes Shape

Every year my Maudslay installation starts with an idea and a vague plan of how I will actually execute it. I can be so cavalier because I know my husband will solve the situation for me. He has come through again and I have a test version of it hanging from the dogwood in the back yard.

My piece this year is one that only an optimist could make. It's called Play at Maudslay and is collaborative installation of books. I need others to make it a reality. VIcki Hendrickson who heads the Newburyport Literary Festival helped get it started by assembling members of the steering committee for a fun evening of bookmaking.

I will be inviting all who come by on the day of the installation, Saturday, September 10 from 11-3, to make a book. And to extend participation into the run of the exhibit there will be blank books mixed in with the completed ones and markers available. Again the optimist. I hope people don't take the makers home and put the tops back on tightly. If you're in the area on the 10th, please stop by. I'll be along one of the main paths into the park called Hedge Drive on the map.

Here's the tree.
