365 WEST in CounterForm Exhibit SLC

I am very excited that I just received notice that my 365 West piece has been selected to the 2012 Counterform exhibit in the J Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City and will be on display until mid October (see below).
365 West is a Mixed media art box and installation completed Fall 2011.

Using: found basket, paper, book board, ribbon, water color, crayon, pen & ink, and linen thread.​
Approx value/sale price: $5,000
Outside: Lidded basket and label.
Inside: Handmade, lidded, removable box (ribbon handles) containing 12, removable concertina ‘Sky Journals’.

Each Journal represents one month of post cards, sewn together, recording the daily skies, to the west, at 3pm (wherever I was in the world) over a period of 1 year (July 1st 2010 through June 30th 2011). And sits on top of a tab which will enable you to remove the journal.
It can be displayed in two ways:

1. As a wall installation (top photo) all twelve journals hung together on the wall.

2. Or kept within the box on on the Fold-away Lectern in basket lid, one journal displayed at a time and each page turned as a daily affirmation.

If you would like to go, here are the details: The exhibition will be on display in the Level 1 Gallery of the J. Willard Marriott Library, The University of Utah from August 31 through October 14. Gallery Hours are M, T, W, TH: 7a-2a; F: 1a-8p; S: 9a-8p, Su: Noon-2a. Hours differ during University breaks and holidays.
