Hello my pretties!
So I'm here today to show you what I have been up to for the past week here in North Bay!
My mother is an artist (Michele Karch Ackerman). She currently has a residence at the North Bay hospital for her to work on her latest art show that will be showing at The Kennedy gallery here in North Bay in about two years time.
This show is inspired by Tuberculosis sanatoriums and how people had to stay in rooms with brown hospital curtains to recover. So my mother decided to make one large hospital curtain made out of hundreds of vintage handkerchiefs as a healing process.
Most of which are tatted.
The idea is occupational therapy, love and kindness.
So she has been spending her days at the hospital piecing together this curtain and sewing it together.
As I (her trusty side kick) tat on the side.
