Audition for Suncrest Gardens

A long piece of bell pull fabric replete with embroidered trees on the edge inspired me to make a companion piece for Performance at Suncrest Gardens. I’ve worked in the theatre for 30 years. For a musical or dance casting call (the “cattle call”) one gives one’s name and stands in the spotlight and auditions hoping for a place in the performance.
