Tour the Bowdoin Exhibit

The Tin Pedlars just held a wonderful exhibit in a pretty unique location at Bowdoin College, Brunswick, ME. The exhibit had wonderful reviews from students, visitors and group members that were able to attend the reception and/or the exhibit on their own.

For those that were not able to attend I thought it might be fun to be able to take a video tour, so iPad in hand I toured the exhibit. (Now a word of warning I am no video specialist. I did my best to keep steady and get some closer shots for detail.)

The first video starts at what I figure is the natural beginning. Rugs were hung in grouping to best show themes and techniques. After the hallway I will enter the plexiglass room.

This second (short) video will start with a reshowing of a few rugs hoping for better clarity, then continuing through the plexiglass room.

This next video is of the upper hallway.

The last video is of what the committee referred to as the Jackye Hansen room. Here were exhibited pieces designed and hooked by Jackye and some of her students, especially around the traditional art of Waldoboro rug hooking.

I hope you enjoyed the tour and have received a bit of inspiration.
