This beautifully-scaled runner is a perfect example of the challenges we encountered in mounting our exhibit.  The pieces varied widely in size and color and scale.  Veronna Capone’s “Playground Chatter” is exquisitely woven.  The sett is fine (10 epi) and the resulting patterns invite close scrutiny.  But it would be lost on a wall if displayed next to a broader weaving with larger patterns.  Also, it was the only piece using a shade of red tending toward coral.  If it is set next to a piece with a darker, purplish red, the effect is jarring.  Happily, this piece fit perfectly on its own narrow gallery wall.
