Love Letters: Grace Gallery
Cameraphone pic taken at the opening.

I’m a little behind on posting about this because the show actually opened two weeks ago, but I have a letter in the Love Letters show at Grace Gallery. I enjoy writing letters and decided I had to do something to submit for the show. My letter is written to Boris, but using more “poetic” language than I would normally write in. I wasn’t sure if it was any good (read: incredibly sappy.) until I went to opening night and read it again. I wrote it by hand in one draft, trying to be as articulate and neat as possible since it was going to be in a show. Boris has only seen this photo of it but I’m pretty sure he had the mushies when he read it.

I hope you can read the words at its current size because I couldn’t quite bring myself to retype them for further sharing. Even though this letter is hanging in a gallery and has been read by many people, it is still a very personal piece of work.

More about the show opening on Scout Magazine.

that’s just so lovely, Rachael. I saw the preview for the show, but I didn’t realize you had something in it. thanks for posting it.

Rachael Says:

When she released details of the show in her press release it didn’t seem to include all the participants so before going to the show I had no idea I was in it. Since I mailed it to the gallery I wasn’t sure it made it there. It was great to find it in the show though.
