Embroidered Signature

(click to enlarge)

I was at Yard Dog gallery all day today hanging the Over and Under show, and it was such a treat to open the carefully packed boxes, and unwrap the work of artists I have blogged about here but not seen in person. And, there were many surprises: some work was much larger than I had expected (Dana Carlson) and some was much tinier than I realized (Emily Eibel). But, my favorite surprise was discovering the wonderful embroidered title and signatures on the back of Michael Aaron McAllister's work (above). It's a shame to have it hidden against the wall, so I snapped a photo for you before it was hung and hidden.

Over and Under opens this Friday, November 6th at Yard Dog 7-9pm
