"Fishing with Max Brückner"
Most ancient peoples had no word for the color blue.
They could not explain the sky nor the ocean. Poetry and love letters suffered. Once “blue” entered the world the earth rattled and chimed, sending forth “turquoise” and “sapphire.” The Navajo and the Jewelers rejoiced. Poets wept.
Picasso danced and Policemen beamed.
Everyone in the world is cordially invited to celebrate World Cyanotype Day at A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas on Saturday, September 28 by creating cyanotype flags of their interpretation of Land/Sea/Sky on white cloth,
each 12×12 inches (30×30) cm.
Strung together, the flags symbolize the beautiful planet we all inhabit.
If you would like for A Smith Gallery to hang your flags in celebration of World Cyanotype Day, please mail or ship them for delivery by September 16, to:
A Smith Gallery
103 N Nugent #175
P O Box 175
Johnson City, TX 78636
If you would like for us to return your flags, please include return address and postage.
The installation will hang in the gallery until October 21, 2019. The flags will then be taken to New Orleans to the Healing Arts Center for an exhibition beginning in December for PhotoNOLA until the end of Mardi Gras 2020.
And for those of us that can’t make it to Johnson City?
September 28th is your chance to put the “World” into World Cyanotype Day.
Gather with friends in backyards, parking lots, galleries, parks – wherever your gathering spot may be – to connect, create & celebrate this beautiful planet we inhabit by creating cyanotype flags together.
There is no entry fee. We just want to fill the gallery with cyanotype flags!
