After much thought, I decided to enter “Not So Empty Lot” into Art All Night this year. This deserves to be known world wide, but just in case you haven’t heard of the event, dedicated volunteers find an abandoned factory site (so far pretty easy) in Lawrenceville, clean it up, and hang thousands of pieces of art in it for one night (yes — ALL night).

The rule is one piece of art per person, ready to hang. There is no jury and no censorship, although un-family friendly pieces are segregated. There is no fee to the artist. Sales take place by the interested buyer filling out a slip of paper (a bid) which the artist receives upon pick-up. Funding take place through grants, donations, and sales of tee shirts and other items.

Anyway, with such a HUGE space, I decided on one of my largest pieces, heavily discounted.  I also spiffed it up for the occasion, improving the hanging system, and quilting the borders. It is more the fashion now for Contemporary Art Quilts to have no border.  But I liked the one on this so much that I decided to keep it and improve upon it. This piece is 55 x 47.5 inches.
