Opening on March 4

  Interaction by Jacqueline Steudler March 4th – April 27th, 2012 Opening Reception: Sunday, March 4th    12 to 4pm Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is pleased to present Jacqueline Steudler’s solo exhibition “Interaction.” This show consists of an impressive 586 mutable miniature paintings that examine the dialogue between the artwork and viewer. Steudler, who has close ties to Ross Creek since 2008, has chosen this site as the ideal space for her work because of the Centre’s place as a creative community hub. In this exhibition, Steudler subverts the common perception that painting is mostly a visual experience.

interaction # 674 by Jacqueline Steudler, 2012 Everything is ready for the show. Can't wait to have it all up on the wall at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in Canning .

Instead of the screws I will glue magnets on the backside of the woodpanel. This way the magnets will keep the paintings straight. All the magnet poles on the backside of the paintings need to face the same way. 248 paintings have to be attended to (smile); magnets removed, turned over and glued again. 


Everything is ready and the hanging of the first 48 paintings begins. The paintings are not hanging straight! It was very difficult to screw the screws straight into the board. Here now the result. All magnets are attaching to the screw head and point in that direction.  This will not work. I need a new solution.


The first wood panel is ready. Can't wait to try it out and hang the paintings.
